  1. Latest SNE appraisal well offshore Senegal shows strong results

    Offshore staff EDINBURGH, UK – Cairn Energy has completed testing of the SNE-3 appraisal well offshore Senegal. The well is being P&A’d following drilling, coring, logging, and two drillstem tests (DST).  DST 1a flowed at a maximum rate of ~5,400 b/d and a main flow rate of ~4,000 b/d over a 24-hour period from a 15-m (49-ft) zone.  For DST 1b an additional zone of 5.5 m (18 ft) was added and a combined maximum rate of ~5,200 b/d measured, with an associated main flow rate of ~4,500 b/d over a six-hour period. Both main flow periods used a 56/64-in. choke. The Ocean Rig Athena drilled SNE-3, 3 km (2 mi) south of the  SNE-1 discovery well , in around 1,180 m (3,871 ft) of water. Cairn’s initial results confirm similar reservoir quality and correlation of the principal reservoir units between SNE-1 , SNE-2, and SNE-3. Initial indications confirm the same 32° API oil quality as seen in SNE-1 and SNE-2. The company expects to issue revised resource estimates for the SNE oil field soon. Cairn Energy CEO Simon Thomson said: “Cairn is delighted with the flow rates from the latest well in the Senegal appraisal program, which validate the scale and growth potential of the SNE field .  “The results have demonstrated the ability of the upper reservoirs to flow at commercially viable rates and we eagerly look forward to the results of the BEL-1 well which will commence operations shortly.”    Senegal PSC partners are Cairn Energy plc (operator) 40%, ConocoPhillips 35%, FAR 15%, and Petrosen 10%. 03/10/2016
