Canadian oil and gas group Claren Energy Corp, former Terra Nova Energy, said on Monday it has commenced drilling operations at Bobocu gas field in Buzau county, in eastern Romania.
Bobocu gas field is located in the foreland basin of the Carpathians and has an area of 25 km. It was discovered by Romania’s natural gas producer and main supplier of gas Romgaz in the 1980s.

Historical production at Bobocu was a cumulative 33 billion cubic feet from 12 wells, comprised of natural gas that is 99.4% methane, Claren Energy said in a press release.

In conjunction with the current drilling operations, Claren added it plans to apply modern, internationally adopted completion techniques not previously utilized at Bobocu and that is first targeting the Corcova reservoir.

The well is planned to reach a total vertical depth of 2,828 m consisting of a sidetrack operation exiting an original wellbore, it added.

The drilling operation is expected to take approximately 20 days to complete.
