Roc Oil drills duster offshore China

ROC Oil Company Limited (ROC) has drilled a dry well in Block 09/05 in the Bohai Bay Basin, offshore China. 

Roc Oil, the operator of Block 09/05, started drilling the second of two exploration wells in September 2015. This is also a second duster for Roc Oil in the block as the first exploration well, the QK11-1-1, was abandoned in September 2014.

According to AWE Limited, a partner in the project, the second of two planned exploration wells in the block, QK12-3-1D, reached the planned Total Depth (TD) of 3,600m MDRT (Measured Depth below Rotary Table) at 03:00 hours (03:00 am) AEDT on October 18, 2015.

The well drilled all three targets and intersected good stacked reservoirs in these objectives. However, no hydrocarbon shows were recorded, AWE said.

Logging of the well has been completed and the Joint Venture (JV) will now proceed to plug and abandon the well, following which the JV will have met all PSC obligations, AWE concluded in the press release.

The Joint Venture partners in the block are AWE with 40% and Roc Oil with 60% interest.

Block 09/05 is located in the western part of the prolific Bohai Bay Basin in China, approximately 10km southeast of Tanggu, the largest port in China. The block covers an area of 335 km2 with water depths from approximately 5m to 10m.
