The company said that the objective of exploration at Kimu 2 was to test the potential resource upside in the field and assist in selecting the optimal commercialisation pathway for it.
 
Kimu 2, in Cretaceous Alene Sandstone, reached a total depth of 1943m on May 20.
 
Using a High Arctic Energy Services rig 115, the well encountered gas in the target Alene reservoir. 
 
"The provisional interpretation of the Alene Sandstone at this location is that it has similar reservoir properties to Kimu 1 and a slightly greater reservoir thickness. In addition, the reservoir appears to be in pressure communication with Kimu 1," Oil Search said.
 
Cores and logs were acquired and a drill stem test undertaken over the Alene Sandstone interval, which flowed at a continuous rate of 34.5 mmscf/day over a 72-hour period through a one-inch choke.
 
"Kimu 2 will be plugged and abandoned as planned. Evaluation of the well data acquired has now begun and will be used to help assess options for the potential commercialisation of the Kimu field," Oil Search said.
