MELBOURNE, Australia – Cue Energy says the Maari MR7A development well is onstream offshore New Zealand, at an initial production rate of 1,500-2,000 b/d of oil.

The optimal rate will be determined after several weeks of production history, based on reservoir management considerations.

Total output from the OMV-operatedMaari field is now around 15,000 b/d.

MR7A is producing from the Moki formation reservoir unit. It was drilled horizontally from the Maari wellhead platform to a TD of 4,220 m (13,845 ft), of which 920 m (3,018 m) was completed in good-quality reservoir section, according to log data.

Cue says significant undeveloped reserves remain at Maari and Manaia and the additional development will enable extraction of these reserves.

TheEnsco 107 is now drilling the MR10 well as an additional infill producer, later to be converted to a flank water injector to support continued production from the Moki formation.
