Well C-37 Operational Update
Zenith is pleased to confirm that C-37 well deepening operations began on July 26, 2019, as per the Company’s announcement of July 18, 2019.
The Company can confirm that it has successfully retrieved well C-37’s entire kill string amounting to approximately 1,000 meters of tubing.
The Company has subsequently begun the process of installing a new API standard 5,000 working pressure tubing spool complete with tubing hanger seat and a new wellhead. The Company has taken this decision in order to mitigate the risks of potential difficulties arising as a result of wellhead failures which had been encountered in previous operations.
A new BOP system, inclusive of an accumulator unit, choke manifold and remote controls will be subsequently connected as soon as the aforementioned installation is completed.
At the same time, the Company has initiated the preparation of drilling fluids in anticipation for the imminent beginning of drilling activities.
Zenith is pleased to report that no equipment failures have been registered and that all equipment associated with the BD-260 drilling rig has functioned as planned.
In addition, the Company can confirm that it has received all the necessary approvals from the local authorities for the beginning of drilling activities following a full rig inspection carried out on July 29, 2019.
Further updates will be provided to the market as appropriate.
