Range Resources confirms that the QUN 159 well which was spudded on Aug. 8 has reached target depth of 2,500 feet.
This is the third development well drilled by Range in Trinidad this year. The well is located at Morne Diablo field and was targeting the Lower Forest and Upper Cruse horizons.
Preliminary analysis of the well indicates approximately 40 feet net oil pay. The programme to perforate the well has been approved by the government and Range intends to proceed with production testing of the well during early September.
Production testing on the two previously drilled development wells (MD 250 and MD 251) is also underway. All three wells are expected to be brought into production during Q3 2016.
