Notes
Stratigraphic slim hole 24-33 was drilled in a lease area south of current production during March 2001. The well was continuously cored from 235 m to the total depth of 610 m. Several fracture zones were encountered with noticeably large fracture apertures and the maximum recorded temperature was comparable to nearby productive wells. A second well, slim hole 12-33, was drilled to a total depth of 297 m during April 2001. Continuous core was taken from 152 m to total depth. Numerous open fractures were also observed in this well and the maximum recorded temperature was similar to the 24-33 well.
