SDX Energy Inc., the North Africa centered oil and fuel firm, has introduced fuel discovery has been made at its SD-4X effectively within the South Disouq Concession, Egypt (SDX 55% working curiosity and operator).
The SD-4X effectively was drilled to a TD of seven,806 ft and encountered 89 ft of internet typical pure fuel pay within the Abu Madi horizon, which had a median porosity within the pay part of 24%. The effectively got here in on prognosis with a reservoir part of comparable high quality however thicker than the unique SD-1X discovery effectively.
The effectively can be accomplished as a producer within the Abu Madi after which examined after the drilling rig has moved off location. The testing is anticipated to begin between 30 and 45 days after the rig departs, relying on the supply of testing tools. Assuming a profitable take a look at, it’s anticipated that the effectively can be related to the infrastructure positioned adjoining to the unique SD-1X discovery, the place manufacturing start-up is anticipated late in fourth-quarter 2018. After completion, the rig will transfer to the SD-3X effectively which is the second of two appraisal places included within the 2018 improvement program.
The effectively take a look at program within the LMS-1 effectively within the Company’s Lalla Mimouna Nord allow in Morocco has been accomplished. Upon take a look at the effectively flowed at sub-commercial charges which at this stage, the corporate believes are non permanent and resulting from injury created by the fluids used to manage the elevated pressures encountered within the effectively while drilling, nevertheless that is nonetheless being investigated. At current, the corporate says the injury is the results of formation clays reacting to sure parts used to extend the mud weight of the drilling fluid. The reservoir part, past this zone of harm, is regarded as of fantastic high quality primarily based upon the effectively log response and isn’t anticipated to have been broken by the drilling fluids. Once the fluid interplay research is full, a stimulation program can be designed and carried out and the effectively take a look at can be repeated.
