SYDNEY, Australia – Roc Oil has found more oil in the WZ6-12 and WZ12-8 West Oil Field development areas in the Beibu Gulf offshore China.
WZ6-12-A6, a deviated step-out exploration well on the northern flank of the WZ6-12 South field encountered hydrocarbons in multiple zones in the Weizhou formation.
The HYSY 931 rig is drilling the well from the WZ6-12 wellhead platform. A production liner will be run to allow future completion and tie-in for production.
This was the second successful well in a three-well exploration and appraisal program, intersecting a total of 58 m (190 ft) TVD of net oil pay. The thickest individual pay interval is 38 m (124 ft).
