The company said that the well would be deviated by approximately 357m towards south-east from the existing plinth of well KSG#27 and would be drilled to a target depth of approximately 1082m measured depth (MD) and 1,000m true vertical depth (TVD).
The well is expected to take up to three weeks to drill.
The first development well of the current campaign, KSG#65 - previously referred to as KPL-3E-7 - which was drilled on February 18th 2013, was successfully drilled to a revised target depth of 1,145m MD and 1,111m TVD on March 10th 2013.
Based on the results of wire-line log interpretation, drill cuttings, side-wall cores and formation pressure data from the reservoir dynamic tester, the company said that nine potentially hydrocarbon bearing sands were encountered in the well, a total net pay of 44 metres, out of which it said that eight appear to be oil bearing.
