LONDON -- Hoang Long Joint Operating Co., the operator of block 16-1 in the Cuu Long basin off southern Vietnam, has spudded its first well in the Te Giac Trang (TGT) development/appraisal drilling program.

According to partner SOCO International, the TGT-H1-1P well targets an interval near the TGT-2X exploration well.

All wells drilled in the program will be retained as producers and will not be tested prior to coming onstream in mid-2011.

In the same block, 9 5/8-in. casing has been cemented in place and tested in the TGD-2X appraisal well on the Te Giac Den discovery. Following testing of the wellhead and blow out preventer, this well should start drilling into the reservoir section later this week.
