DUBAI -- Initial testing of the Dzheitune (Lam) 28/134 development well’s long and short strings resulted in production rates of 2,685 b/d of oil and 869 b/d of oil, respectively, according to Dragon Oil. The company anticipates further testing and optimization over the coming weeks.

The jackup Iran Khazar drilled the well to a depth of 3,280 m (10,761 ft). The rig has now skidded to spud the Dzheitune (Lam) 28/136 development well. The platform-based Rig 40 is currently drilling the Dzheitune (Lam) 13/135 development well.

“I am pleased to announce the successful completion and initial testing of the Dzheitune (Lam) 28/134 development well using the Iran Khazar jackup rig,” says Dr. Abdul Jaleel Al Khalifa, CEO of Dragon Oil. “While the current production rate is approximately 43,500 b/d of oil due to the slow start to the drilling program this year; we, nevertheless, remain focused on meeting our annual production growth forecast for 2009.”

The Dzheitune (Lam) 28/134 development well is the second well to be completed from the refurbished Dzheitune (Lam) 28 platform.
