MELBOURNE, Australia -- The semisub Songa Venus has spudded the Cornea-3 well offshore Australia, according to operator Hawkestone Oil.

The company plans to acquire high quality nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) logs within the Middle and Early Albian reservoir sands to obtain accurate information on reservoir porosity, especially productive porosity and permeability, and hydrocarbon saturation. The well is also targeting formation pressure measurements and formation fluid samples with an MDT tool, including possible flow test from a dual packer MDT.
