The Hoang Long Joint Operating Co. resumed drilling at the Te Giac Trang (TGT) field offshore Vietnam, according to partner SOCO International.
The Te Giac Trang Field of Block 16-1, is in the shallow water Cuu Long Basin, offshore southern Vietnam.
The PetroVietnam Drilling VI (PVD VI) jackup has moved on to location at the H1 Wellhead Platform (WHP). Preparations to start drilling the TGT-H1-30P well into the crestal part of the H1.1 fault block were completed and the well was spudded on 8 March 2017.
The well will target the Miocene and Oligocene reservoir horizons. It is expected to take 30 days to drill and complete the well.
The PVD VI rig will then move to the H5-WHP to continue the remaining, two-well, 2017 TGT development/appraisal drilling program.
The Hoang Long Joint Operating Co. is the operator of Block 16-1. SOCO holds 30.5% working interest.
