Sardar-e-Jangal Field Exploration Well Progressing

TEHRAN Mar 01 (Shana): The second exploration well in Sardar-e-Jangal field has been drilled 2,440 meters, director of exploration at Khazar Exploration and Production Company said.

Yousef Etemadi said the second well will be drilled up to the depth of 4,022 meters, adding that the drilling will be over in three months if no obstacle is posed.

“Continuation of drilling operations up to 4,022 meters deep depends on the conditions. If obstacles like big faults or mud blowout do not appear, the drilling operations will go on,” he said.

Etemadi said the British Petroleum is currently drilling in the Azerbaijan’s sector of the Caspian Sea.

Etemadi said several days ago that more hydrocarbon reserves are likely to be explored in the offshore Sardar-e-Jangal field in northern Iran as liners (16 inches in diameter) have been installed in the second well of the Caspian Sea reservoir.

He said that installing the pipeline in such a depth was difficult in recent years due to the heavy flow of water and the waste of drilling fluid.

Etemadi described this operation as unique, saying that the liner hanger is installed in a 20-inch casing.

Sardar-e-Jangal is estimated to hold two billion barrels of oil in place with a recovery rate of 25 percent.
