HOUSTON, Apr. 10 -- Toreador Resources Corp., Dallas, has completed the Dogu Ayazli-2 appraisal well 1,969 ft west-northwest of the Dogu Ayazli-1 discovery under development in the Black Sea off Turkey (OGJ Online, Mar. 9, 2006).
The appraisal was drilled to a measured TD of 4,778 ft. Logs indicate gas in 106 m of net pay in 10 zones in the Kusuri formations, which are productive in the Dogu Ayazli-1 well.
Dogu Ayazli-2 will be tested after being tied back to the Dogu Ayazli production tripod to be installed later this year. Operations on the appraisal well have been suspended. The Prometheus jack up will move 2.5 km to the east to drill the Bayhanli-1 exploration well on a separate prospect between the Dogu Ayazli and Akkaya discoveries.
