The Corduroy zone in this well was 30’ low to the RCR 01 and the RCR 04. This well is on the western flank of Area 1 and proves the boundary of the structure in the Corduroy dipping in the vicinity of the RCR 03. Taken in conjunction with the RCR 01 and RCR 04, there is structurally high conformity in the Corduroy stretching at least six miles between the two wells. Completion of the Corduroy in the RCR 03 brought in a hole full of water which is sensible for a structurally lower location (hydrocarbons tend to float on water, and accumulate up structure). While it may pay to gravity-produce the water off of the RCR03 to bring on Hydrocarbons, the tests on the RCR 01 and RCR 04 will determine the viability. Rather than spending money testing other zones, we have placed further completion efforts for the well on hold until results can be verified from the production of the RCR 01 and RCR 04.
