Oil and gas company BNK Petroleum Inc (TSX:BKX) revealed on Monday that it has drilled and set casing
on the Glenn 16-2H well in 25 days.
After a break to set casing
to a depth of 3,727 meters and the installation of high pressure blowout preventers drilling has restarted and has mounted a depth of 3,835 meters.
The section of the well was deepened from the originally planned 1,341m to set casing
in a competent shale formation, ensuring the integrity of the cement job on the 13 3/8" casing.
This section of the well was deepened from the originally planned 1341m in order to set casing
in a competent shale formation thereby ensuring the integrity of the cement job on the 13 3/8" casing.
We have set casing
on the well and expect to test the potential pay zones and bring the well on production within six months.
Lapindo's partner, PT Medco E&P Brantas, said Lapindo did not set casing
at a depth of 8,500 feet for a hole drilled in a well, which is necessary to anticipate potential problems in the drilling process.
Working with one piece (keep remaining casing in cool water), set casing
in a colander and slip one end onto a faucet; hold in place as you run cool water through to rinse; repeat.
The forward plan is to set casing
above the primary HRZ shale target and commence coring operations in the lower Hue / upper HRZ, which is the primary target for the Icewine #1 exploration well.
