Morumbi Oil & Gas prepares to complete new well in Alberta

Posted on 18 June 2010

On 17 June, Morumbi Oil & Gas announced that it will soon begin completion operations at its newly drilled 12-33 vertical well in northwest Alberta, Canada.

The well, drilled in early March 2010, encountered the targeted Cadotte reservoir approximately 2 m structurally higher than the highest offset wells drilled to date in the McKinley Cadotte.

The company intends to complete the new vertical well in July because unusually wet weather conditions have made the well site inaccessible. Plans also include upgrading the roads for all-season access so the company can bring in the necessary completion equipment. A relatively small fracture stimulation of the well is planned to access the clean sands penetrated by the original 12-33 horizontal well 8 m west of the new vertical well.
