By OGJ editors

A unit of Greenfields Petroleum Corp., Calgary, logged 422 ft and 193 ft of behind-pipe oil pay thickness in the first two of its 36 planned recompletions in Gum Deniz oil field in the Caspian Sea just off Baku, Azerbaijan.

Cased hole logs confirmed 422 ft of pay in the X, IX, VIII, and VI zones at Well 464 and 193 ft of pay in the IX, VIII, and VI zones at Well 449. Completion tests will be carried out in the next 30 days.

In Well 464, zones X and IX are to be tested together, and zones VIII and VI will be evaluated later. In Well 449, Zone IX will be completed, and zones VIII and VI will be evaluated at a later date.

When two new western-style workover rigs arrive in late 2011 and early 2012, Greenfields intends to proceed with 24 recompletions in the subsequent 12-month period in Gum Deniz oil field and Bahar gas field (OGJ Online, July 20, 2011).
