PERTH, Australia – Tap Oil has issued an update on development drilling at the Mubadala Petroleum-operated Manora oil field in the northern Gulf of Thailand (permit G1/48).

TheMNA-21 well, drilled from the Manora platform, has reached TD of 2,164 m (7,100 ft) MDRT.

Petrophysical interpretation of well logs shows total net oil pay of 56 ft (17 m). The main objective 490-60 sand is developed in the updip location with 44 ft (13.4 m) net pay, and one additional sand at the 500 level encountered 12 ft (3.6 m) net pay.

The main objective of the well was to provide a northern up-dip production point in the 490-60 reservoir found in MNA-18.

Casing has been set and a suspension string will be run in hole pending well completion.

The rig has now skidded and spudded the MNA-20 development well. It will then undertake a program that will involve installing selective zone completions with electric submersible pumps for production.
