After seven days of production testing, L 142 has been completed through casing perforations over 63 feet covering five reservoirs at 65 barrels of oil per day.

Interra has a 60 per cent interest in the Improved Petroleum Recovery Contract of the Chauk field and also owns 60 per cent of Goldpetrol which is the operator of the field.

L 142 was drilled using hired ZJ 750 rig to a total measured depth of 3,600 feet and Interra’s share of the cost of drilling was funded from existing funds on hand.

L 142 is the third directional development well drilled under the Ayeyarwaddy River from the west bank with the primary objective of accelerating production from the oil reservoirs that produce in this portion of the northern Chauk oilfield.

L 142 is the sixteenth well drilled in the Chauk oil field and twenty-third in Myanmar in 2014.

Interra, through Goldpetrol, has also commenced drilling development well CHK 1193 in the Chauk oilfield.

CHK1193 is being drilled using hired ZJ 750 rig to a total measured depth of 3,300 feet.

CHK 1193 will be the sixth well drilled by Goldpetrol in a continuation of the successful development programme of directional drilling under the Ayeyarwaddy River from the east bank in northern Chauk field.

CHK 1193 will be drilled as an infill well to four producing wells with the primary objective of accelerating production from the oil reservoirs that produce from these wells.

Interra estimates that the results of the drilling and completion should be available in approximately six weeks.
