  • Operations to prepare for well clean-up flow and production testing continue
  • The Cambay-76H "proof of concept" horizontal well is evaluating the production potential of the Y Zone interval of the extensive deep Eocene "tight" reservoirs in the onshore Cambay Production Sharing Contract area, Gujarat, India

Oilex Ltd (ASX: OEX, AIM: OEX) today announced that operations to prepare for well clean-up flow and production testing are continuing. The coil tubing unit was not able to retrieve milling tools being used to open the second fracture stimulation stage. Consequently, it is planned to mobilise a work-over rig to the well location to retrieve the milling tools. Following this, operations will resume to open up the remaining fracture stimulation stages so that clean-up operations and a flow test can be conducted.

The Cambay-76H "proof of concept" horizontal well is evaluating the production potential of the Y Zone interval of the extensive deep Eocene "tight" reservoirs in the onshore Cambay Production Sharing Contract area, Gujarat, India.
