The Friesian #2 well, located in Green Canyon Block 599, has been drilled to a total depth of 28,989ft and encountered around 389 net feet of oil saturated Miocene aged sands with three main sand lobes encountering more than 210 net feet of high quality oil pay plus a fourth sand lobe encountering 179 additional feet of oil pay that was not fully evaluated.
Given the excellent results delivered in the drilling to date, the joint venture has elected to deepen the well by approximately 600 feet/182 metres to the original planned TD of the SM71 #1 well to ensure the entire package of D5 Sand lobes have been evaluated.
