Mubadala spuds exploration well offshore Thailand

Mubadala Petroleum has kicked off drilling operations at its Manora-8 exploration well in the Gulf of Thailand.

According to Mubadala’s partner in the field, Tap Oil, the Manora-8 well spudded at 23:00 on Sunday, May 20, 2018.

The primary objective of the Manora-8 well is to explore for hydrocarbons in the 600 series sands that are the primary producing sands in Manora.

The Manora-8 exploration well  will test the Footwall prospect, a large area of closure of up to 1,215 acres on the upthrown side of the Manora field bounding fault. In case of discovery, the well will be plugged and abandoned with a future development well to be planned. The planned TD of the well is 6,420ft TVDSS, Tap Oil said.

The Manora field is operated by Mubadala Petroleum with a 60% interest and Tap Oil is its partner, with a 30% interest. The field started production in November 2014. The development includes a wellhead processing platform and a floating storage and offloading (FSO) vessel.

Mubadala is using the Ensco 115 jack-up drilling rig for the operation. The Manora-8 is the first of the four wells planned for drilling as part of Mubadala’s Manora drilling campaign.

The four well program comprises of Manora-8 exploration well, Manora-8ST1 appraisal well, MNA-20 development well, and MNA-21 development well.
