Icewine reaches target depth

The Icewine No. 2 well has reached its target depth.

Drilling crews working on the onshore North Slope exploration well reached a total depth of 11,450 feet on May 15, according to a May 17 announcement from 88 Energy Ltd.

Through its operating subsidiary Accumulate Energy Alaska Inc., the Australian independent is now completing wireline logging, cementing the production liner and demobilizing the Arctic Fox drilling rig, in preparation for flow testing in late June.

In early June, the company plans to perform “micro stimulations … to calibrate the stress profile in the zone of interest. This data will then be combined with the processed and interpreted log information in order to select the optimal location of perforations for the main stimulation operation,” according to 88 Energy. The company expects to conduct the “main stimulation” in the third week of June, followed by a one-to-two-week cleanup and a production test at a choked back rate to prevent proppant from being displaced.
