Leni Gas and Oil (LGO) has spudded the sixth well of its 30-well Goudron development in Trinidad.
The drilling began on GY-669 on October 5 and has reached a depth of 2,294 feet and intersected 227 feet of net oil pay in Gourdron Sandstones.
The well, which is the first from the third drill pad, will isolate the Goudron Sandstone and a number of thin high pressure gas intervals in the Upper Gro Morne.
Once it has reached its planned total depth of 3,926 feet the well will be logged and cased for completion.
Neil Ritson, chief executive, said: “The Goudron Sand has come in on prognosis and is oil bearing as in all previous wells. The new well design, with three casings, is proving valuable in isolating the thin gas stringers in the formation above the Gros Morne Sandstone reservoir and allowing us to drill with optimum mud properties in the main reservoir section, further reducing the risk of formation damage and increasing likely production rates.”
The fifth well of the project spudded in August.
