Guendalina well offshore Italy to be completed as producer

Rockhopper Exploration PLC reported that the sidetrack well drilled at Guendalina gas field in the Adriatic Sea has successfully reached its target depth of 3,276 m.

Wireline logging confirmed that all target levels are natural gas-bearing, and have been encountered slightly higher to prognosis in an updip position with good reservoir characteristics and an additional deeper gas level.

The well is now being completed as a producer with output expected in late October. Eni SPA, which operates the well offshore eastern Italy with 80% interest, started production from the field in 2011 (OGJ Online, Oct. 27, 2011). Rockhopper holds the remaining 20% interest in the well.
