Yes, there is Oil

    Hi Guys,

    Here's a better report on Huinga 1b.

    Once again BLO have not explained the facts.

    There never was any Oil water contact in the initial drilling so where did formation water come from now.

    It makes much more sense that it is from drilling and conditioning.

    Still a goer M.


    New Zealand Huinga 1B-ST Production Testing Status Report

    EP 38716, Taranaki Basin. Pancontinental: 6.6%

    The Company has been advised by the operator that during the last week an acid wash was performed on the perforated Kapuni sandstone 4387- 4409 m interval to remove the effects of cementing the casing and lost circulation material that could be impeding the flow of hydrocarbons. A nitrogen lift was subsequently conducted and the well swabbed to encourage the Kapuni sandstones to flow. Daily, intermittent, increasing gas flows have been flared at the surface, and produced in association with spent acid, drilling mud and filtrate.

    This is consistent with expectations, given the large volumes of mud and lost circulation material lost during drilling operations. The recovery of 21 barrels of oil from this interval during the open-hole DST#1 demonstrated that this interval is oil productive. Swabbing of the Kapuni will continue in order to increase gas and subsequent oil flows.

    The operator has indicated this morning that they believe gas cut water recovered from the well to be formation water and that it now interprets the previously recovered oil from the open hole DST of the Kapuni formation originated from Basal fractures in the Murihiku. Pancontinental has not seen any data to support such interpretation, and accordingly, considers it is premature to make such interpretion and awaits further results and information.

    After testing the Kapuni formation, the overlying Murihiku Formation fracture zone perforated interval of 4261- 4285m interval will be acid washed and flow tested separately, over a period of several weeks. The Murihiku fractured zone, because of the severe lost circulation problems encountered while drilling, is indicative of high permeability, and is expected to flow at higher rates than the Kapuni interval.

    These extended tests will provide critical data on reserves, production rates, reservoir characteristics, the quality and nature of the hydrocarbons and formation fluids in the Kapuni sandstones and the extensive fractures within the Murihiku Group metasediments.

    The production test data will also assist in determining the possible total thickness of the current (minimum) 237 meter gross oil column, as no oil/water contact and no clear indication of a gas oil contact has been established to date. This also provides a significant upside to the potential reserves of the Huinga discovery.

    The DST#1 over the 4370-4428 meter Kapuni sandstone interval recovered 21 barrels of 42 degree API oil from the middle of the 4263m to 4500 metres gross interval. The top of the Kapuni Group is interpreted at 4378 meters.

    Sales contracts for oil produced during the Huinga testing program have been negotiated on an interim basis, with the option to extend once specific volumes are defined by the testing program.

    In the Taranaki Basin, oil and gas are produced at commercial rates from Kapuni sandstone reservoirs as well as fractured limestones of the Tikorangi formation. Many large commercial oil and gas fields, both overseas and within Australia produce from fractured reservoirs.

    PEP 38716 hosts all or part of three structures related to the eastern bounding fault of the Taranaki Basin, all being similar to that of the major Rimu/Kauri oil and gas discovery 18 kilometres south which is currently under development. The structures are named Huinga and Huinga South, both entirely within the Permit, and Makino, which is partly within the Permit but mostly within PEP38728, which adjoins to the south.
