Caza Oil & Gas said that drilling has commenced on its Arran prospect in Acadia Parish, Louisiana.
The Marian Baker #1, which is the initial test well on Arran, commenced the drilling.
The Marian Baker #1 well is designed to drill to a total depth of approximately 16,000ft and is expected to encounter multiple, potential, hydrocarbon bearing reservoir sections.
It is expected to take approximately 60 days to reach the proposed total depth.
The company said that Arran is a 3-D seismically defined prospect supported by AVO data within a proven play fairway.
Caza has a 25% working interest before casing point and a 35.94% working interest after casing point in the Marian Baker #1 well.
