The well, Al Amir SE-24 (AASE-24), was drilled to a depth of 9,925 feet. It encountered the Shagar and Rahmi oil reservoirs, hitting 15 feet of net pay in the former and 7 feet in the latter.
AASE-24 flowed oil at a rate of 1,714 barrels of oil per day, as well as 3mln cubic feet of associated gas.
"The AASE24 well is expected to be another strong producer from the Shagar and is the second of two successful development wells to be drilled in the field this year,” said Paul Welch, SDX Energy
“The results of these two development wells combined with a 9 well work-over program, which his currently underway, will allow us to maintain production at a plateau rate of 8,000 Boepd for the remainder of 2016."
The well has now been connected to existing facilities and production will begin immediately.
