  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
  4. The results of a check survey of the location of:
    1. for a subsea well — the wellhead; or
    2. in any other case — the top of the casing supporting the blow-out preventer
  5. If the well is a sidetrack — the name of the parent well
  6. The names of the rig contractor and rig operator
  7. The name of the rig drilling the well
  8. The rig’s make and model
  9. 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. mudlogging
  10. Names of MWD and LWD tools used
  11. List of log runs for wireline logging and velocity surveys
  12. The purpose of the well (for example development, appraisal, exploration or stratigraphy)
  13. The outcome of the well operation (for example completion of the well as a producer, suspension or abandonment)
  14. Raw pressure-time listings for any formation fluid sample tests and production tests
  15. The spud date
  16. The rig release date
  17. What is being used as the depth reference for the well (for example the Kelly bushing or the rig floor)
  18. The height of the depth reference above sea level
  19. The water depth at the well
  20. The measured depth of the well
  21. The true vertical depth of the well
  22. If applicable, the depth of perforation in the petroleum reservoir
  23. The date on which the total depth was reached
  24. 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
  25. Particulars of equipment and casing installed on or in the well, including schematics
  26. If applicable, information on cementing operations and schematics of abandonment
  27. Bit records
