Drilling could last up to two months, if the well is successful.
Harvey is within blocks 48/23c, 48/24a, and 48/24b, close to IOG’s Thames Pipeline export system.
The main aims of the well are to firm up gas volumes which are currently in the range 85-199 bcf and to demonstrate reservoir deliverability.
Under a recent farm-out arrangement, CalEnergy Resources has the option to acquire 50% of the Harvey licenses within three months of the well being completed.
Fraser Well Management is operating the well, with Halliburton Manufacturing and Services providing offshore drilling services.
