The well has drilled to a total depth of 4,088 metres measured depth (1,955 metres true vertical depth subsea).
The Gudrun oil field is interpreted to be a small accumulation with reserves still to be estimated following re-mapping based on the well results. First oil at a rate of around 2,000bpd is expected in around one week.
With at least five successful exploration wells and a number of promising appraisal wells in 2003 the Harriet joint venture had an astonishing success rate in its offshore WA drilling program.
North Pedirka-1, Gipsy-3, Hoover-2 and Ginger -1 all had oil and gas shows helping to push production to over 28,000bopd.
Following the completion of Gudrun-2, the next wells to be drilled will be Taunton-4 and Blackthorne-1 in TP/7. These two wells are planned to appraise separate southeasterly and southerly extensions of the Taunton Oil Field.
Harriet Joint Venture Participants are Tap Oil 12.2229%, Apache Energy (operator) 68.5% and Kufpec Australia 19.2771%.
