Brookside Energy Ltd (ASX:BRK) (FSE:8F3) has completed drilling and casing operations at the high-impact Jewell 13-12-1S-3W SXH1 well in the SWISH Area of Interest (AOI) in the world-class Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma, USA.
The Jewell Well reached ~14,100 feet prior to tripping out of hole for scheduled maintenance, following which total measured depth (TD) was called at 14,100 feet.
Production casing was subsequently successfully landed, set and cemented in the horizontal section of the well in preparation for the commencement of completion operations.
The Latshaw Drilling Rig 14 has been released and demobilization has commenced with the Jewell operations continuing to proceed on schedule, safely and without incident
“Completing well for production”
Brookside managing director David Prentice said: “We are delighted to report the successful completion of the drilling and casing operations on our much anticipated high-impact Jewell Well.
“The drilling and casing operations were conducted very efficiently and diligently with credit to Latshaw Drilling personnel, our team of contractors and the Black Mesa Energy team.
“This well has now been further de-risked with the lateral landed as planned in the Sycamore formation (with extensive oil and gas shows and evidence of natural fracturing) and importantly production casing has now been set and cemented in place.
“We are looking forward to keeping our shareholders updated as operations continue to complete the well for production and turn it to sales.”

The Jewell Well is being drilled as a mid-length horizontal well targeting the Sycamore formation at a depth of ~7,500 feet.
This well has been drilled to a total measured depth of ~14,100 feet, with ~7,100 feet of lateral section drilled in the Sycamore that will subsequently be cased with production tubing to be perforated and treated to allow for the production of oil and gas.
The company will now continue the demobilisation of Rig 14 and will prepare the site for the arrival of well stimulation equipment and the commencement of completion operations.
Looking forward, Brookside will begin building the production tank battery and oil and gas separators and the construction of a 6 inch, ~2,700-foot gas line from the Jewell Well to a tie-in point on a nearby gas gathering system.
