VANCOUVER, Oct. 23 /CNW/ - Norwood announces that drilling of the San Bartolo 1-X (SB-1X) sidetrack well has commenced on the INDOKLANICSA concession in Nicaragua. The purpose of the sidetrack is to test certain hydrocarbon bearing reservoir zones, which were identified during the drilling of the original San Bartolo 1 well in 2007.
The sidetrack well will exit the San Bartolo-1 well bore at 5560' and drill approximately 1440' at a northeasterly azimuth to a measured depth of 7000' achieving an inclination of about 20 degrees and a distance of approximately 200' from the original wellbore. Petrophysical analysis from the San Bartolo-1 well suggests the sidetrack will transect 143 feet of oil-bearing reservoir target zones.
The well will be drilled underbalanced to permit fluid inflow as the reservoir targets are penetrated. A highly inhibited polymer drilling fluid will be used to minimize damage to reservoir mineralogy. An open-hole testing program is planned with a gas lift system to produce any moveable hydrocarbons encountered in the drilling and completion phases.
The Company will report results as soon as they become available.
