Galilee Energy has completed drilling activities associated with the Glenaras R1 pilot lateral well project, despite adverse weather conditions.
“The Glenaras lateral well programme presented some significant challenges but out experiences team along with the principal drilling contractor, Schlumberger, have achieved a fantastic technical outcome,” said Galilee’s Managing Director, Peter Lansom.
“We look forward to bringing the well onto production in the coming weeks and hopefully achieving a more rapid drawdown on this R1 coal.”
The Glenaras project is targeting coalbed methane (CBM) production. The lateral drilling programme aimed to increase the production offtake from the existing pilot well.This will accelerate reservoir pressure drawdown and the onset of gas production.
Production operations at the pilot well are expected to continue through the remainder of 2016.
