Mubadala encounters oil pay in Manora development well

UAE-based Mubadala Petroleum has encountered a total net pay of 268 feet in the MNA-20 development well located in the Northern Gulf of Thailand.

The MNA-20 development well is part of the Manora oil field located in the G1/48 concession where Mubadala Petroleum is the operator and Tap Oil is its partner with a 30% interest.

The two-well development program, comprising MNA-20 and MNA-21, started earlier in June, following the completion of Manora-8ST1 appraisal well.

Tap Oil informed on Wednesday that the MNA-20 well was drilled from the Manora platform and the primary objective of the well was to provide a southern updip production point in the 490-60 reservoir as well as other 500 level reservoirs found in the Manora-8ST appraisal well recently drilled. The well’s bottom hole location is close to that of Manora-8ST.

On June 13, 2018 at 23:30 hours WST, the MNA-20 well reached final total depth of 2,415 meters MDRT. Petrophysical interpretation of well logs shows a total net pay of 268 feet. The main objective 490-60 sand is well developed with 79 feet pay, similar to the Manora-8ST well. Four sands at the 500 level encountered 169 feet net pay. One sand at the 300 level encountered 20 feet pay close to the downdip extent of the reservoir.

Tap added that, following completion of drilling of the MNA-20 well, the rig has skidded and started completion operations on the MNA-21 well.
