Oilex Ltd (OEX.ASX.L) Award of Well Management Services Contract

Award of Well Management Services Contract for Cambay field, India development

Oilex Ltd (Oilex or the Company) is pleased to announce the execution of a well management contract with a consortium comprising Manan Oilfield Services and Bedrock Drilling.

Under the Project Management Consultant (PMC) contract, Manan / Bedrock will manage the re-fraccing of the existing C-77H horizontal well during Q1 2022 and the drilling of two new fracced horizontal wells (C-78H and C-79H) during H2 2022.

The aim of the re-fraccing of the C-77H well is to demonstrate the ability to achieve production rates of 3-5 times the well’s current production capacity, providing a model for the highest commercial returns from a full development of the EP-IV tight siltstone reservoir. The contingent resources of the EP-IV reservoir have been estimated at 930 BCF of gas and 61 million barrels of condensate (RISC 2015).

Successful re-fraccing of the C-77H well will be followed by the drilling and fraccing of two new horizontal wells in the second half of 2022 with a view to establishing gas sales into the high pressure grid. All project plans are subject to securing the necessary funding and Government of India ratification of the transfer of 55% participating interest from GSPC to Oilex.

Oilex’s Head of India Assets, Mr Ashish Khare said:

“The signing of the PMC contract marks an important milestone for the Company. After extensive technical reviews and analysis, the Company is moving into the execution phase ahead of full development of the EP-IV resources strongly supported by high domestic gas demand and prices. The Manan / Bedrock consortium combines solid well management, technical and operational expertise. We look forward to collaboration with our established PMC partners.”

Oilex’s CEO, Roland Wessel said:

“The award of the PMC contract follows an extensive review of the field development options and an assessment of the technical and operational requirements for the successful development of the extensive EP-IV resources. I am confident that the Manan / Bedrock consortium and Oilex partnership will result in the “unlocking” of the value of the Cambay field.”
