The Lagia wells will be drilled using the contracted Petro PDSO land rig, Shams 1. The five wells, Lagia 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 will be targeting the main producing reservoir, the Nukhul formation.
The Phase 2 field development also includes the successful installation and commissioning of steam facilities for a thermal recovery process on the production wells.
