Western Leases - Winx-1 Exploration Well
Mobilisation of the Nordic Rig#3 commenced at 0845 1st February (AK time) from Deadhorse, Alaska. The mono body rig structure will now travel ~90 miles to the Winx-1 well site, travelling at ~1mph. Additional equipment required for the commencement of drilling is being mobilised to site concurrently in order to meet the scheduled spud date of ~15th February.
An image of the Nordic Rig#3 and the Winx-1 Well Location and Regional Nanushuk/Torok Discovery Wells can be viewed at the link below:
Winx-1 is located ~4 miles east of the Horseshoe-1/1A well that significantly extended the highly successful Nanushuk play fairway to the south. Winx-1 will target gross best estimate prospective oil resource of 400 million barrels of oil (144 million barrels net to 88E) across multiple stacked objectives, including the Nanushuk Formation, which is the primary target of the well.
Cautionary Statement: The estimated quantities of petroleum that may be potentially recovered by the application of a future development project relate to undiscovered accumulations. These estimates have both an associated risk of discovery and a risk of development. Further exploration, appraisal and evaluation are required to determine the existence of a significant quantity of potentially movable hydrocarbons.
