Drilling at Hides gas field close to completion

Drilling at Hides gas field close to completion

ExxonMobil PNG, operator of the PNG LNG project, said that development drilling on the Hides gas field is nearing completion.

The eighth production well, G2 at Wellpad G, has encountered the Toro/Digimu reservoir and has been completed as a producer. The produced water disposal (PWD 1 ) well has also reached its total depth and has been completed as a water injection well.

Results from the eight new production wells and the PWD well have been largely consistent with expectations, with all wells showing good pressure communication. The new structural, log and pressure data from all the wells will be used to update the Hides structural and reservoir models. This work, which is expected to be concluded in 2015, will help further define the Hides gas resources and distribution.

Rig 702 will now be moved to the Angore field to drill two further PNG LNG project production wells, while Rig 703 is currently being mobilised to Wellpad F, to drill the Hides F1 Deep development/exploration well.
