Empyrean is the operator of Block 29/11 in China and has 100% working interest during the exploration phase. In the event of a commercial discovery, its partner, China National Offshore Oil Company (“CNOOC”), may assume a 51% participating interest in the development and production phase.
In preparation for spudding of the Jade prospect well in mid-December 2021, the Company has agreed a comprehensive scope for the survey with COSL .
The objective of the well site survey is to identify all possible constraints and hazards including man-made, natural and geological features which may affect the operational or environmental integrity of a proposed drilling operation. In addition, the survey is designed to provide sufficient data to fully assess potential top-hole drilling hazards at the proposed well location and to ensure the rig can be secured safely onsite.
The survey is scheduled to commence in late October 2021, subject to a safe weather window for operations.
The information contained in this announcement has been reviewed by Empyrean’s Executive Technical director, Gaz Bisht, who has over 31 years’ experience as a hydrocarbon geologist and geoscientist.
