Kupe Development wells – Kupe South 6, 7 & 8, offshore Taranaki Basin, New Zealand – 2007-12-28

20 octobre 2021 Pierre Perrin-Monlouis

Origin Energy Limited advises that at 12pm EST today, the 17 inch hole section of the Kupe South 6 well had reached a bit depth of 975m MDRT (measured depth from rotary table). The 17 inch hole section of the KS-6 well will be drilled to approximately 2,000m MDRT where the hole will be cased and cemented, prior to drilling the 17 inch hole sections of the KS-7 and KS-8 wells.

Drilling began at 22:40 hrs on 19 December 2007. The 22 inch top hole sections of all three development wells in permit PML 38146 have been completed to the following depths:

Kupe South 6 560m MDRT
Kupe South 7 566m MDRT
Kupe South 8 568m MDRT

Each of the three production wells will be drilled by the ENSCO 107 jack-up drilling rig to a vertical depth of approximately 3,400 metres.

The Kupe Project drilling campaign is being undertaken on a “batch-drilling” basis. This process involves completing the same section of each of the three wells before proceeding to the subsequent section and is a more efficient approach than drilling the wells separately.
