The Cheramie #2 shut-in on November 10. Below is a brief explanation of the issues and a plan to get the well back on line.
1. The Cheramie #2 had been on production until Friday, November 10th when the well abruptly went off line. The well had been producing 20-22 bod.
2. Saturday, November 11 - Diagnostic work (see attached) began to determine the cause. A burst suction line was found and repaired. Once repaired attempts to return the well to production were unsuccessful. Slick Line(SL) was then called out to inspect the downhole Jet Pump Valve (JPV).
3. Sunday, November 12 – SL was mobilized (see attached) and the JPV was pulled and analyzed but there were no issues found. The JPV was rerun in the wellbore and efforts were made to get the well to come around but were unsuccessful.
After reviewing all alternatives, It will be necessary to mobilize a rig to pull the tubing and check for a tubing leak, packer leak or hole in the casing. The worst case scenario would be a hole in the casing but all things considered it appears to be something minor. The cost of the workover should be less than $25,000 and does not require an AFE. Should further work need to be done, the rig will be released, a detailed Authority for Expenditure (AFE) will be put together and sent out for approval. A rig will not be available for at least two weeks.
