After landing at the required depth, the team set the Inflatable Production Packer
(IPP) to anchor the whipstock and drilled off the formation in a single trip, saving the operator 29 hours of rig time and more than $100,000 of operational expense.
Therefore, when the well is stable the company will install a production packer
above a new seal assembly to permit a double seal completion and due to that the flow test is now expected to in August 2012.
The Sensornet SureSight cable was deployed along the entire 11,000ft well and was passed through one production packer
and four swell packers.
However, the rig is now operating well, the production packer
has been set in the wellbore, and perforating guns and production tubing are being run into hole in readiness for the extended production test (see photos on http://www.indopacific.com).
