Frontera Resources Corp. has confirmed the presence of 78.8 m of combined pay interval in three target zones with the Dino-2 well, the second of a three-well campaign, at the company’s Taribani complex on the Block 12 license in Georgia.

The Dino-2 well has been sidetracked from an existing wellbore and drilled to a vertical depth of 2,700 m into the Late Sarmatian Eldari formation. The pay intervals were in Zones 9, 14, and 15. Cement bond logging indicated a consistent bond across all zones of interest, allowing for effective containment and fracture stimulation. Current bottom hole pressures at Dino-2 are between 6,800-7,200 psi, Frontera said.

Frontera also confirmed several oil and gas shows during drilling operations. Formation gas flowed with a mud weight reduction drilling through 2,445-2,460 m in Zone 12, which also showed oil at surface. Zone 13 flowed gas while drilling through 2,520-2,540 m, and the company recorded increased connection and formation gas drilling through Zone 14 from 2,570 m to 2,600 m.

The rig will be moved to the T-39 well location for commencing sidetracking operations once released from the Dino-2 location.

Frontera Resources first opened its Kura basin operations in Block 12 in more than a decade ago (OGJ Online, Nov. 26, 2007).
