Maha Energy has announced the spudding of the Attic Well on Tie Field and completion of 7TTG workover at Tartaruga.
Attic Well and Tie Field Operations
The Attic development well (the “Attic Well”) was spudded today after a lengthy mobilization and rig up. The Attic Well is targeting the Agua Grande and Sergi oil producing formations of the Tie Field. The proposed position of the Attic Well is 55 m. higher structurally than any other producing well on the field and targets previously untapped oil volumes at the crest of the structure. A secondary objective of the Attic Well is to investigate the previously undrilled and untested Boipeba formation which underlies the oil bearing Agua Grande and Sergi formations.
The Attic Well is expected to take 30 – 60 days to drill, test and complete depending on potential hydrocarbon shows in the Boipeba.
Upon completion of the Attic Well, GTE-3 will be worked over to increase production by recompleting the well from a single comingled completion string to a dual completion string. Maha has current offtake agreements at the Tie Field to export up to 4100 BOPD. Management is working hard to increase these to 5000 BOPD which is the capacity of the newly expanded Tie Field Processing Plant.
7TTG (Tartaruga Field)
The 7TTG workover is now complete. The stuck 3-1/2” tubing has been recovered, the previously unperforated P1 and P4 zones have been perforated and the P1 zone stimulated. The well has now been completed with a 2-7/8” dedicated jet pump and the immediate plan is to clean the well up and return it to production. Once clean up operations are completed and the well is stable, production results of this test will be communicated in a future press release. The Drilling Rig has now been rigged down.
107 D (Tartaruga Field)
Further to the January 7, 2019 announcement that the new horizontal sidetrack reached a Total Depth of 3661 m as of 18 December, 2018, the horizontal sidetrack has now been lined with a 3-1/2” liner that has been installed and sealed. Certain required non-standard specialty perforating equipment has been identified and will be air freighted to Brazil as soon as possible. Expected timing for the perforating is uncertain at this time and will be the subject of future communication by the Company.
Jonas Lindvall, CEO of Maha Energy commented “The spudding of the Attic Well begins the last vital piece of the 2018 Capital Plan designed to increase production form the Tie Field from 2000 BOPD to 5000 BOPD. The anticipated production from the Attic Well will be welcomed in the newly upgraded Processing Plant at the Field.”
