The X2 reservoir is placed in an extension faulted block without prior penetration, laterally adjacent to the chronologically older X1 reservoir, currently under production. The oil type and composition in X2 is unknown, therefore a representative fluid sample was required, along with formation pressure information, for proper fluid characterization and fluid gradient for pressure regime understanding. This information will define the future development strategy and if the extensional fault is conductive or represents a lateral barrier.
