Israel: Myra wildcat finds good Miocene sands, gas shows

A group led by GeoGlobal Resources Inc., Calgary, has found promising rocks and gas shows at the Myra-1 wildcat in the Mediterranean offshore and will move the Noble Homer Ferrington semisubmersible to the Sara-1 wildcat location.

Wireline logs at Myra-1 confirmed the presence of high-quality Lower Miocene sands equivalent in age to the Tamar sands and gas shows that indicate an active hydrocarbon system on the Myra license (OGJ Online, June 26, 2012).

GeoGlobal said it will conduct further analysis to assess the potential for more drilling on the license, including the potential to sidetrack the Myra-1 well which has been plugged and abandoned.

Sara-1 is to spud by the end of September in 1,400 m of water 60 km off Israel. It is to be drilled vertically to 4,000 m subsea in about 50 days.
