China: Dart has four rigs at Xinjiang CBM project

By OGJ editors

Dart Energy Ltd., Brisbane, has mobilized four rigs to the 3,979 sq km Dajing coalbed methane production sharing contract area in northwest China and has spudded the first two exploratory wells.

The DJD-02E and DJD-10E wells are in the contract area northeast of Urumqi in Xinjiang Autonomous District. Assuming no program delays, Dart would expect the first core drilling results to be available in the first quarter of 2012.

The drilling follows approval in August of the 2011 exploration program and budget by the Dajing Joint Management Committee comprised of representatives from Dart and its partner China National Petroleum Corp. The program calls for drilling 14 wells.

Also on site are three desorption units, two permeability test units, and three work camps. Two more exploratory wells are to spud within a week.
