Final well completion report

Final well completion report means a report that includes all of the information listed in subregulation (3).

(Subregualtion 3) For the definition of final well completion report in subregulation (2), the information required is in the following table.

  1. The name of the well
  2. The name of the title area in which the well is located
  3. The location of the well, in the form of:
    1. latitude and longitude; and
    2. map sheet name and graticular block number; and
    3. seismic line location and shotpoint number; and
  4. If the well is a sidetrack — the name of the parent well
  5. The names of the rig contractor and rig operator
  6. The name of the rig drilling the well
  7. The rig’s make and model
  8. The names of the contractors for:
    1. cementing; and
    2. wireline logging; and
    3. measurements while drilling (MWD); and
    4. logging while drilling (LWD); and
    5. (e) mudlogging
  9. The purpose of the well (for example development, appraisal, exploration or stratigraphy)
  10. The outcome of the well operation (for example completion of the well as a producer, suspension or abandonment)
  11. Raw pressure-time listings for any formation fluid sample tests and production tests
  12. The spud date
  13. The rig release date
  14. What is being used as the depth reference for the well (for example the Kelly bushing or the rig floor)
  15. The height of the depth reference above sea level
  16. The water depth at the well
  17. The measured depth of the well
  18. The true vertical depth of the well
  19. If applicable, the depth of perforation in the petroleum reservoir
  20. The date on which the total depth was reached
  21. If the well is deviated or horizontal:
    1. the surveyed path of the well; and
    2. the coordinates of the bottom of the well bore; and
    3. if applicable, the coordinates and true vertical depth of the intersection of the well with the reservoir horizon
  22. Particulars of equipment and casing installed on or in the well, including schematics
  23. Bit records
  24. Drilling fluids used
  25. Drilling fluid losses
  26. List of cores, cuttings and samples taken, and their depths and intervals
  27. List of logs acquired
  28. Details of any hydrocarbon indications
  29. The measured depth and true vertical depth of marker horizons or formation tops
  30. Geological interpretations of the observations made as a result of drilling the well, including:
    1. lithology; and
    2. stratigraphy; and
    3. reservoir properties and quality; and
    4. geochemistry of source rocks if available; and
    5. environment of deposition if available
  31. Wireline formation test results
  32. Production test results
  33. Core analysis
  34. If the well is an exploration well — the relevance of the observations and interpretations to the evaluation of the hydrocarbon potential of the area.
