The following table provides a sequential list of events that were important to the discovery and development of the Hebron oil field.
Hebron Development Milestones
The hydrocarbon that was discovered in this first round of drilling was deemed uneconomic, for the time, due to the poor reservoir quality. Test results showed uneconomic rates of oil in the Ben Nevis reservoir, and gas / condensate in the A Marker and Lower Hibernia reservoirs. The initial I-45 discovery was followed by two phases of delineation drilling.
The well was drilled to assess the structurally highest point of the fault block at the Hibernia and Jeanne d'Arc reservoirs, and tested oil in these reservoirs. The well also penetrated the Ben Nevis reservoir in the downthrown fault block to the south, and tested oil.
This well tested oil in the Ben Nevis, A Marker, and Jeanne d'Arc reservoirs.
No significant amounts of hydrocarbon found.
The D-94 well encountered the same oil water contact as identified in the I-13 well, indicating that the I-13 fault block was in communication over geologic time with the D-94 fault block.
The well encountered higher structure than the I-45 well and a gas cap to the pool.
The well tested oil in the Ben Nevis and Jeanne d'Arc H sand.
