Morocco: Rharb multipay gas discovery gauged

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 4
– Circle Oil PLC said its KSR-10 well on the Sebou permit in Morocco’s Rharb basin is a multipay gas discovery that is available for production when needed.

The well sustained 10.6 MMscfd on a 20/64-in. choke from the Main Hoot. The perforated Main Hoot zone of 8.4 m at 1,736.6-1,728.2 m measured depth plus a 1.5- m zone at 1,720.0-1,718.5 m MD has 9.9 m of calculated net gas pay.

The Mid Hoot zone was then perforated and flowed gas at a sustained 2.39 MMscfd on a 16/64-in. choke. The perforated Mid Hoot zone at 1,650.5-1,649.7 m MD plus 1,647.6-1,646.8 m MD has 1.6 m of calculated net gas pay.

The well also logged gas pay zones of 4.4, 3.1, and 1.4 m in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Guebbas. Testing of the Lower Guebbas encountered problems and was inconclusive. The three Guebbas zones be tested later.

The rig is moving to drill ADD-1, fourth well in the planned five-well program in the area. Then the KSR-11 well will be drilled and the DRJ-6 well from the previous drilling campaign will be tested. Weather permitting, the KAB-1 well, drilled in September 2010, will be reentered for logging or be redrilled.
