Kinetiko Energy spuds third well on Korhaan project in South Africa

korhaan wellAustralian gas explorer Kinetiko Energy, has spudded the third well on the Korhaan Project in southern Africa

The third well named Korhaan-3 is estimated to reach a depth of 400m-450m to test the gassy sandstones and coal bed methane (CBM) horizons from the known coal beds that were intersected and observed to be gassy from adjacent (400m away) flow tested gas wells KA-03PT2 and KA-03PTR.

With the successful spudding of three new wells of the Korhaan project, Kinetiko Energy is expecting that all five wells are intended to become potential early, pilot-production wells, with comingled production to an infield offtake facility being planned.

Korhaan-3 well is being drilled with air/percussion to TD estimated to be between 400-450m. The spudding of Korhaan 3 is the last of the three well Korhaan project programmed to be completed this year.

The three-well drilling programme to has been successfully undertaken within 400m of the proposed gas collection terminal at Amersfoort where access and infrastructure is being established to enable the completion of off take negotiations.
