InterOil completes Antelope-5 extended flow test

InterOil Corporation on Thursday said the second extended well test on Antelope-5 in the petroleum licence 15 in the Gulf Province of Papua New Guinea was completed. 

The well flowed at an average of 53.3 million standard cubic feet gas per day (mmcfd), InterOil said in a statement.

The preliminary analysis confirms the reservoir quality and InterOil plans further analysis to quantify nearby reservoir properties.

Initial results from the Antelope-6 drilling during the month of February show an approximately 12 meters of dolomite present in the drilled section. A multi-rate flow test was conducted over an interval from 2,264 to 2,330 meters obtaining a 13 mmcfd flowrate over a 24 hour period. The well is currently shut in for pressure build up, InterOil said.

Upon completion of the testing phase, the well will be drilled to a proposed depth of approximately 2,650 meters. Whether further testing of the well will be conducted will depend on the results of the wireline logs.

Antelope-6 spudded in December 2015 intersecting the top of the reservoir at approximately 2,264 meters. It is located 2km east-south-east of the Antelope-3 well and should provide structural control and reservoir definition on the eastern flank of the Antelope field.
