Singapore Petroleum Company says that the Thai Binh-1X successfully tested natural gas and condensate over two sand intervals. The two intervals flowed at a maximum combined rate of approximately 23.0 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas through a 128/64″ choke at a wellhead pressure of 534 psi. Condensate was produced at a rate of three barrels per million cubic feet.
Another drill-stem test is currently being conducted to test the hydrocarbon potential of the upper sand intervals.
