Flow tests were performed using the wells' natural bottom-hole pressure
and was limited to the lower portion of the Ellenburger formation in the wellbore.
Faulkner added, "The initial bottom-hole pressure
is coming in at 9000 psi and both existing fracs are intact and not watered out.
perforated, bottom-hole pressure
was estimated to be approximately 11,650 psi.
Johnny Edwards, President of Energy Resource Technology GOM (ERT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Helix, stated, "Preliminary data from down-hole test tools confirmed oil in the Wang well with over 11,800 psi of bottom-hole pressure
Sustained flow tests to evaluate bottom-hole pressure
and to develop optimal flow rates are underway.
Johnny Edwards, President of Energy Resource Technology GOM (ERT), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Helix, stated, "Preliminary data from down-hole test tools confirmed oil in the Danny II well with over 9,500 psi of bottom-hole pressure
MPO's Total Control Driller ("TCD") is an advanced MPD system that maintains constant bottom-hole pressure
to mitigate many drilling hazards.
data from shut in response predicts a maximum flow rate of 416bopd from this zone.
At this time, the oil and gas flow rate would be expected to increase substantially due to the lower flowing bottom-hole pressure
Sonoran has concurrently re-completed a further 3 KWB wells in the Canyon which have tested gas with significant bottom-hole pressure
Part of the West Koynare structure of the Lower Triassic Alexandrovo formation, the well has also recorded the highest bottom-hole pressure
encountered in the country, measuring 11,500psi, as well as recording low sulphur content.
Shut-in casing and tubing pressures are 2,600 psi, indicating virgin bottom-hole pressure
