Oilex to refrack Cambay 77H well in India in July

Sydney-listed Oilex on June 23 said that the refracking of the Cambay 77H well in India will start in mid-July. The refracking operation is anticipated to last seven days and will be followed by flow-back and testing.

“The workover rig arrived on location at the C-77 H wellsite on June 20th 2022 and is being rigged-up in preparation to pulling the completion string from the C-77 H wellbore,” Oilex said. “Civil works to prepare the wellsite for the refracking operations have been completed.”

The company expects to announce the results in August. The objective of the refrack is to prove a methodology that will underpin the Cambay field development plan with optimised economics.

The Cambay field is located in the Cambay basin in the state of Gujarat. In June 2021 Oilex executed a binding sale and purchase agreement to acquire Gujarat state-government owned GSPC’s 55% participating interest in the Cambay production sharing contract, providing the company with a 100% working interest in the Cambay concession. 

Oilex last month updated the gas and condensate reserves at Cambay field in India following its purchase of GSPC’s share of the project.
