Buccaneer Energy Limited (ASX:BCC) Kenai Loop Well 1-4 - Progress Report.
Time: 9.00 am (Sydney) 3 September 2013 / 3.00 pm (Anchorage) 2 September 2013.
Depth: 9,550' Measured Depth ("MD") / 9,358' True Vertical Depth ("TVD")
Activity: Drilling to the intermediate casing depth of 9,550' MD has been successfully completed. Currently in final phase of running 7 5/8" intermediate casing string to approximately 9,500' MD, within the Tyonek Formation, as per plan.
After running and cementing this casing string, installing and testing the necessary wellhead and blowout preventers, and testing the casing shoe for pressure integrity, drilling will resume. The primary target sand(s) are expected to be encountered within the next several hundred feet below this intermediate casing string.
The Kenai Loop # 1-4 is being drilled from Drilling Pad # 1 which is the same drilling pad as Buccaneer's other Kenai Loop wells and will be drilled to approximately 10,700' TVD / 10,897' MD.
The well will be drilled to a target that appears to be fault separated from the current producing zones in the Kenai Loop # 1-1 and Kenai Loop # 1-3 wells and is expected to be completed in late September 2013. The current production facilities at Drilling Pad # 1 will need minor upgrades to facilitate production from this new well and preliminary plans have been finalized to perform these upgrades with minimal delays.
