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.
