Oct 29, 2010 12:00 AM

Dragon Oil has announced the completion and initial testing of the Dzheitune (Lam) B/148 and 28/149 development wells. The wells tested at an initial combined rate of 2,639 boepd and 4,379 boepd, respectively.

The Dzheitune (Lam) B/148, the third well in a series of wells to be drilled from the Dzheitune (Lam) B platform, was drilled to a depth of 3,858 metres by the Iran Khazar rig and completed with dual strings. Testing of the short and long strings resulted in production rates of 1,556 boepd and 1,083 boepd, respectively.

As reported in the Interim Management Statement, the Iran Khazar rig is now drilling the Dzheitune (Lam) B/150 well. The Dzheitune (Lam) 28/149 well, which was drilled to a depth of 3,295 metres by the NIS rig, was also completed with dual strings. The short string tested at 1,866 boepd with the long string testing at 2,513 boepd.

The NIS rig has skidded to the next slot on the Dzheitune (Lam) 28 platform and spudded the 28/151 well. It is expected to put the last two wells into production before the end of the year and as such these wells will contribute to production growth in 2011.

Dr Abdul Jaleel Al Khalifa, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "I am pleased to report the successful completion and initial testing of the Dzheitune (Lam) B/148 and 28/149 development wells. The solid results from both wells and the near-completion of the trunkline should provide a firm foundation for driving production growth." "The last two wells of the 11 wells planned for 2010 are being drilled now and we expect to complete them before the end of the year."
