c001437,

wow, thanks for your explanation. If correct I can now visualize the structure and can see how going downdip a little bit might make the well a success.

so, maybe the BRF was found to be only 5.5 meters of good sand and filled with oil before hitting the granite basement. No water below the top of the BRF. The formation was just thin at that location hopefully.

i am optmistic again....
