HOUSTON, July 29 -- Apache Corp. has brought on stream at a rate of 10,690 b/d of oil its Mohave-1H discovery in the Carnarvon basin off Western Australia.
Production is from a 398-ft horizontal interval in Lower Cretaceous Flag sandstone.
Mohave field is 4.5 miles southeast of Apache's Varanus Island production hub in 26 ft of water. Mohave-1H encountered an oil column of 42 net ft and was sidetracked horizontally for completion. It's the only well required for development of the field.
The field is part of the Harriet joint venture, which Apache operates with a 68.5% interest. Its partners are Kufpec, 19.3%, and Tap Oil, 12.2%.
