The well was drilled in 1996 to a depth of 3990m and was plugged with 5 cement plugs in the same year. In the years after surface pressure build up was detected and the decision was made to re-abandon the well.
The objective was to find the leak path and to re-abandon this well. Works consisted of milling through the existing cement plugs and perform inflow pressure tests. After successful inflow testing, the well was to be plugged back to surface.
