More quality than quantity, this time..
Just a single post, but quite noteworthy…
I have told you before that the oil column is under all of the Antelope structure, so I will stick with that until proven wrong but I have also told you that much of that oil column is in very tight low porosity/permeability rock. The oil will be hard to get out of the platform rock unless we find it in a fractured zone. I see the oil being in three segments of the reservoir.
2. The reef limestone above the platform which has an average porosity of 7% which is likely productive. The pay zone can be several thousand feet thick, depending on how far they can drill horizontally and how many horizontal holes they drill from the vertical hole. For example if we had 257 feet of oil column in the vertical hole and the vertical hole was capable of producing X BOPD and we are then able to drill one 4000 foot horizontal hole or four 1000 foot hole in the oil column then we should expect to produce as much as 15+ times X from the horizontal well bores. Maybe even more since it may be possible to drill the horizontal hole(s) in the very best streaks of porosity.
3. The dolomite reef in the down dip locations where the top of the reef dips as low as the oil column. Of course this assumes that the dolomite cap covers all of the reef including the down dip portions. If we can find oil in the dolomite, either by drilling horizontally or by moving the locations further down dip, we will have some very significant oil wells.
Now where might we look for this oil bearing dolomite? Back to our famous slide at: http://www.interoil.com/presentation/200… Slide No. 10. Now if you will recall we have 2300 feet of gas column in Antelope 1. Now we do not know what the contour interval is on this map but if we start at Antelope 1 and measure down dip to the edge of the red line and count that as 2300 feet it would not be unreasonable to assume the contour interval of this map is 1000 feet for each contour line.
