Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug.10 / Trend, E. Ismayilov /
Within 10 days, SOCAR plans to land a casing string at a depth of 2,600 meters in its project to drill the second exploratory well at the Umid Field.
A source said drilling is underway.
The well depth is about 2,200 meters of the projected 6,500 meters.
"Work is carried out in normal mode. Well completion will be carried out by late 2011," the source said.
As SOCAR head Rovnag Abdullayev said earlier, drilling the well is necessary for marking out the field.
All the specific field features that were determined during the drilling process of the first well will also be taken into account during drilling the second well.
