Claren Energy commences drilling the Bobocu 310 Side-Track well

Posted by OilVoice Press - OilVoice


Claren Energy Corp. ("Claren") (TSX VENTURE:CEN) is pleased to announce that drilling operations have commenced on the Bobocu 310 side-track well ("B310-ST"). B310-ST is being drilled within the onshore Bobocu gas field, comprised of 25km2 (6,200 acres), situated in the foreland basin of the Carpathians approximately 150 km NE of Bucharest. The field was discovered by Romgaz, which is the largest natural gas producer and main supplier of gas in Romania.

Historical production at Bobocu was a cumulative 33 Bcf from 12 wells, comprised of natural gas that is 99.4% methane. Geologically the field is comprised of Miocene and Pliocene sands with good porosity and permeability. In conjunction with the current drilling operations, Claren plans to apply modern, internationally adopted completion techniques not previously utilized at Bobocu.

B310-ST is targeting the Corcova reservoir. The well is planned to reach a total vertical depth ("TVD") of 2,828 meters consisting of a sidetrack operation exiting an original wellbore. The drilling operation is expected to take approximately 20 days to complete, and is targeting three Upper Miocene sandstone reservoirs located between 2,526 meters to 2,712 meters TVD. B310-ST will step out horizontally 600 meters from the existing Bobocu 310 well in order to penetrate the three targets in the given interval.

"We are very excited that the spudding of the Bobocu-310 side-track well has commenced," stated Henry Aldorf, Claren's Chairman and CEO. "We are fortunate to have a very talented and experienced operating team together with our partner Zeta Petroleum, and contractors who have extensive experience in Romania. It is a credit to our team to be able to execute a farmin agreement, and subsequently spud a well within a 90 day window. Our objective is to prove the model at Corcova, and then replicate it throughout the Bobocu field."
