Offshore staff

ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan – Dragon Oil has completed drilling and initial testing of the Dzheitune (Lam) C/167 development well in the Turkmen sector of the Caspian Sea.

This was the first appraisal and development well completed from the new Dzheitune (Lam) C wellhead and production platform. The well was completed as a dual producer to a depth of 2,765 m (9,071 ft). Initially it test flowed 1,682 b/d of oil at the short string with the long string testing at 1,714 b/d. Combined initial production was 3,396 b/d.

The drilling rig has since spudded the Dzheitune (Lam) C/170 well.

Dr. Abdul Jaleel Al Khalifa, CEO of Dragon, said: “The drilling results together with logs and pressure tests indicate that the prolific oil-bearing sands in the reservoirs under the Dzheitune (Lam) 28 platform extend to the west towards the Dzheitune (Lam) C platform location. The findings from this well further prove our understanding of the Dzheitune (Lam) West area.”
