LGO gets go ahead to clear sites for two wells

LGO has confirmed that final approval was granted by the Forestry Department on Friday to cut trees in order to clear the well sites for the impending two shallow infill wells at the Goudron field in eastern Trinidad.

Site clearance work will now start at H18E N4 and final preparations will be made to mobilise Rig#18 to the Field.

Drilling operations will commence as soon as the site has been cleared and levelled, and the rig is in the field.

Well H18E N4, which is expected to be designated GY-682, is targeting a net 200-foot thick Mayaro Sandstone pay interval at a depth between 300 and 1,000 feet depth and the well is anticipated to be completed for production immediately after drilling operations are concluded.

Rig#18 will then be moved to the second planned location, H18E G11(5).

Executive chairman Neil Ritson said: “A delay beyond our immediate control caused some minor slippage in the timing of the planned drilling programme, however, we are very pleased that work is now under way.

“These wells are the first two on a renewed campaign of production well drilling and we are pleased to be able to return to normal operations and to the multi-year development plan we have had in place at Goudron since its acquisition in 2012.”
