  • Wellbore history

    General
    Well 7/12-7 was drilled on the South East flank of the Ula Field. The objective was to identify an optimal location and depth for a planned water-injection well by appraising the oil/water contact in this area.
    Operations and results
    Appraisal well 7/12-7 was spudded with the semi-submersible installation Vildkat Explorer on 20 June 1989 and drilled to TD at 3855 (3847 m TVD) m in the Late Jurassic Ula Formation. Drilling proceeded without any significant problems. The well was drilled with seawater and bentonite down to 174 m, with seawater/bentonite/spercell/CMC EHV mud from 174 to 1008 m, and with oil based Safemul mud from 1008 m to TD.
    Top reservoir was encountered at 3772 m (3765.5 m TVD) and the reservoir was oil bearing. Cores had oil shows down to the base of the last core at 3842 m. A well defined OWC or free water level was not found, though water saturations were seen to rise to the range 60-90% at ca 3819 m. Core porosity and permeability, RFT tests, and geochemical analysis showed a division between producible and residual oil to at 3815 m. From this it was concluded that that the lower contact for producible oil at the Ula East was ca 290 m deeper than at Ula West. Pressure measurements proved communication with the pressure-depleted parts of the Ula Field.
    Four cores were cut in the well in the Ula Formation in the interval 3800 to 3842.2 m. Core depths are ca 2 m deeper than loggers' depth. Segregated fluid samples were taken at 3797 m, 3834 m and 3842 m. The 2 3/4 gallon chambers from 3834 and 3842 m and the PVT 1 gallon chamber from 3834 m were drained at surface and contained water with indications of oil. On-shore geochemical analysis of the PVT 1 gallon chamber from 3842.2 m showed that it contained 90/10 water/diesel from the drilling mud. The 2 3/4 gallon chamber from 3797 m contained oil from the reservoir.
    The well was suspended on 26 July 1988 as a possible injector. It was classified as an oil appraisal.
    Testing
    No drill stem test was performed.

  • Pressure plots

    Pressure plots
    The pore pressure data is sourced from well logs if no other source is specified. In some wells where pore pressure logs do not exist, information from Drill stem tests and kicks have been used. The data has been reported to the NPD, and further processed and quality controlled by IHS Markit.
