The target was just 600 feet (183 meters) south of the platform and required a “pregnant lady” well profile through a very challenging shale formation where historically no directional work is recommended. With only one available platform slot, located on the northwest side, the well would first have to be nudged and turned in the 16-inch hole in order to reduce surface collision risk, and would then encounter a channel at the 13-3/8-inch casing point known to cause huge losses. In the 12 ¼-inch hole, a required open-hole sidetrack would present yet another challenge. And furthermore, the 8-½-inch lateral interval would have to be maintained within the reservoir target of just two feet (0.61 meters) in thickness.
