Ukraine: Karlavskoye field gas drilling starts

By OGJ editors
– Transeuro Energy Corp., Vancouver, BC, is drilling the Karl-101 sidetrack well in Karlavskoye field in Ukraine’s western Crimea area.

Discovered in 1966, the field is developed with nine wells that produced gas-condensate from multiple Upper Cretaceous reservoirs at 2,700-3,500 m. Seismic data suggest the field area extends 10 by 3 km.

Transeuro drilled the Karl-101 well to 3,500 m in 2007-08 but a well control incident led to the reservoir section being abandoned and the well was suspended in November 2008 at 2,750 m. More than 100 m of net gas-bearing reservoir was identified from logs and gas samples at 2,800-3,500 m. The company will test five intervals.
