SDX Energy PLC will tie-in and flow test the MSD-24 infill development well on Meseda field to existing infrastructure in its West Gharib concession, Egyptian Eastern Desert.
MSD-24 encountered the primary top Asl formation reservoir at 4,089-ft MD (3,276 ft TVDSS) and reached 4,625-ft TD on June 5, 2022. The well encountered 86.5 ft of good-quality net oil pay sandstone, with an average porosity of 19% in the Asl formation reservoir.
MSD-24 is the fourth well in a fully funded 13-well development campaign on the Meseda and Rabul oil fields in the West Gharib concession.
Operations at the third well, MSD-20, are continuing. The development drilling campaign is aimed at growing production to 3,500-4,000 b/d by mid-2023 (OGJ Online, Mar. 17, 2022).
The rig will now move to the next well in the campaign, MSD-27, expected to spud July 2022.
SDX holds 50% working interest in the West Gharib concession.
