The well was brought into production on April 1 and is currently producing at a stable dry oil rate of more than 1,000 bopd on a restricted choke, Energean said.

The well was drilled to a total measured depth of 5,679 meters and has penetrated 689 meters of the Epsilon sandstone reservoir, in line with pre-drill expectations.

“Energean will continue to monitor and fine-tune production parameters to ensure optimal production from the well,” Energean said on Monday.

The EA-H3 well was drilled using the Company-owned drilling rig, the ‘Energean Force’.

Energean has previously said that there were delays with the well due to issues with downhole equipment and tightness of the supply chain.

The well was drilled to accelerate the first production from the Epsilon accumulation as part of the Epsilon full field development.

Energean last month said that at the Epsilon Platform Development, pre-drilling of the EL-2 and EL-3 wells was proceeding as planned. The construction of the Lamda platform for the development is ongoing in the Constanza Yard, Romania.

First Oil is expected from the Epsilon platform development in late 2019 / early 2020.
