India: Jubilant to test Bhuban gas shows in Tripura

By OGJ editors

Jubilant Energy NV, Amsterdam, will test five zones totaling a gross 92.5 m in the Miocene Middle Bhuban formation encountered at the Srikantabari S-1 appraisal well on the southern part of the AA-ONN-2002/1 block in Tripura, eastern India.

The S-1 well was drilled to appraise Middle Bhuban reservoir sands tested in the Kathalchari-1 discovery well. Drilling was terminated for well control reasons at 2,973 m measured depth versus the planned target depth of 3,323 m because of a gas kick at 2,972 m. Another gas kick was observed at 2,781 m.

Jubilant holds a 20% participating interest in the block through its subsidiary Jubilant Oil & Gas Pvt. Ltd. India, operator for the block. GAIL Ltd. holds the balance 80% participating interest.
