RH Petrogas has announced that the drilling of 15 development wells at the Yongping Oilfield in Fuyu 1 Block was completed before the end of 2014 as planned, with the company now planning a further 4o to 100 wells to be drilled in 2015
The drilling of the 15 wells started on 17 November 2014 and was completed before the year end.

Drilling results are encouraging with producible pays interpreted in 14 out of the 15 wells drilled. The wells are currently suspended in readiness to move into production, which will begin once the winter season is over.

The drilling of the 15 wells started on 17 November 2014 and was completed before the year end.

“We mobilised our resources to commence and complete the drilling of 15 development wells and achieved this within a short period of time after receiving the final ODP approval in October 2014,” said Francis Chang, Rh Petrogas chief executive officer.

“This demonstrates the readiness and preparedness of our team in China despite the challenges posed by the cold winter conditions at the field locations. We will continue to build on the strengths and capabilities of our team and work towards delivering on the ODP program in 2015.”

The group plans to drill another 40 to 100 shallow development wells in 2015.

The drilling follows the receipt of the final approval of the Overall Development Plan (ODP) by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of the People’s Republic of China for the phased development of the Yongping Field as announced on 16 October 2014.

Fuyu 1 Block is located in Songliao Basin, Jilin Province, and is operated by Kingworld Resources Limited (KRL), a wholly owned subsidiary of RHP.

KRL entered into the petroleum contract for Fuyu 1 Block with China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) in November 2007 (Fuyu 1 PSC).

KRL has a 100 per cent working interest in the Fuyu 1 Block during the evaluation phase. Upon the commencement of commercial production under the Fuyu 1 PSC, CNPC would back in for a 51 per cent working interest.
