InterOil’s Antelope-6 intersects top reservoir as expected

The Antelope-6 appraisal well on PRL 15 in Papua New Guinea has intersected the top reservoir at 2,076 m true vertical depth subsea (TVDSS), within range of the expectations of operator Total E&P PNG Ltd.’s reference case, reported license partner InterOil Corp.

Preparations are now under way to run the 9 5/8-in. liner before drilling ahead into the reservoir section, InterOil said.

The Antelope-6 appraisal well was drilled 2 km east-southeast of the Antelope-3 well and is designed to provide structural control and reservoir definition on the eastern flank of Antelope field (OGJ Online, Nov. 11, 2015).

Antelope-6 spudded on Dec. 23, 2015, and has a proposed total depth of 2,464 m TVDSS.

Total holds 40.1% of PRL 15, with InterOil holding 36.5% and Oil Search Ltd. holding 22.8%.
