“Logging while drilling tools on the bottom hole assembly, combined with mud gas ratios and cuttings analysis, will provide initial insight into any potential hydrocarbon bearing intervals encountered during the drilling of the intermediate section,” the company said.

“Additional data and analysis, including from wireline logging and potentially production testing will be required to provide more definitive results.”

Winx-1 is targeting multiple objectives for some 400mln barrels of gross prospective resources, which is 144mln net to 88 Energy.

The well will aim to extend the Nanushuk oil play fairway, as it is located around four miles from the Repsol drilled Horseshoe discovery well.
