The Chinese oil behemoth struck large amounts of oil pay at
the wells which were drilled in Qinghuangdao 29-2 east.

The Qinghuangdao 29-2E-4 well drilled in the middle of the
east structure in the area and made a “significant breakthrough”, CNOOC said on

In total the well struck 218.4 metres of net pay with a
single oil column of 133.7 metres.

“This well was tested to produce approximately 6600 barrels
(of oil per day) and 4.5 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, creating
the highest capacity of clastic rocks in Bohai,” CNOOC said.

Chief executive Li Fanrong said: “I am very pleased that the
company has realised another large discovery through these successful

the company’s reserve and production growth in the near future.”
