Eni finds more gas in Guendalina field

Eni has found gas at a sidetrack well in its Guendalina gas field in the Adriatic Sea, offshore Italy.

A partner in the field with 20% working interest, Rockhopper Exploration plc announced on Monday that the sidetrack well reached its target depth (TD) at 3,276m measured depth on schedule and budget.

According to Rockhopper, wireline logging has confirmed that all the target levels are gas bearing and have been encountered slightly higher to prognosis in an up-dip position with good reservoir characteristics and with an additional deeper gas level. The well is now being completed as a producer with gas production expected to start in late October at which time a further announcement will be issued, the company said.

Sam Moody, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “This is positive news for Guendalina, and we look forward to increasing production from the field later in the year, which will enhance our already strong cash position.”
