Hyperdynamics Finalizes Drilling of Sabu-1 Exploration Well Offshore Guinea

Hyperdynamics Finalises Drilling of Sabu-1 Exploration Well Offshore Guinea

Hyperdynamics Corporation announced it has completed the drilling of the Sabu-1 exploration well on its concession offshore Guinea-Conakry.

The Sabu-1 well was drilled to a depth of 11,844 feet in a water depth of 2,329 feet. Results of real-time hydrocarbon chromatograph measurements and Schlumberger petrophysical wireline analysis warranted collection of downhole fluid samples. These samples, together with sidewall cores taken, are being sent to Core Lab for analysis.

The Sabu-1 is the first exploration well drilled by Hyperdynamics in its Guinea concession, and the first deep water test in the offshore Guinea basin.

In January 2012, a 4,000-square-kilometer 3D survey covering the turbidite fan play in the most prospective deep water portion of the concession using the Oceanic Endeavour (CGGVeritas) was completed for Hyperdynamics, and it is currently being processed.

The Jasper Explorer rig used in the drilling of the Sabu-1 well will be released following demobilization. Hyperdynamics will be incorporating the results of the well, along with the interpretation of the newly acquired 3D seismic, in order to plan the subsequent drilling program in consultation with Dana Petroleum and the government of Guinea.

In addition, the completion of the drilling of the Sabu-1 well and the 3D seismic program fully satisfies the Company’s obligations for the second phase of the offshore license for the period covering September 2010 through September 2013.

Hyperdynamics operates the Guinea concession with a 77% interest. Aberdeen-based Dana Petroleum holds the remaining 23% interest.

Substructures for UK Offshore Wind

Design, construction and installation

Optimising offshore substructures is one of the key challenges for reducing LCOE. Foundation designers have produced a variety of different solutions: monopiles, GBS, jackets, suction buckets and floating foundations. Looking at U.K. projects – different soils, water depths,fabrication timelines and installation challengescreate many questions for the industry to solve. We’re entering uncharted territory; projects arelarger, farther and more complex than ever completed.

Now is the time to have a close look at lessons learnt and define the room for improvement for the U.K. wind industry.
