Australian explorer Oilex has completed the first well in its workover programme at the Cambay field in India and has begun work on the second well in the programme.
The Cambay 19-Z well is pumping out brine with oil production due to begin soon. Work has alredy begun on Cambay-20 and workover activities at Cambay 77-H will commence after Cambay-20, following confirmation of delivery times for various components sourced from North America.
Ron Miller, Oilex’s managing director, said: “”The Cambay workover campaign continues with the successful completion of activities at Cambay-19z.
“The pumping performance to date indicates good well deliverability. We remain vigilant on costs while focusing on increasing cashflow from production.
“We are excited to build up momentum through the workover campaign and capture the commercial benefit of lower contractor service prices currently prevalent in the market.”
