12 to 15 bopd production capability on first well of Advantagewon 2019 programme
Advantagewon has completed production testing on the first well of the Corporation’s 2019 drilling programme which targeted both Poth sand zones in the LaVernia area of Texas.
The well was previously announced as drilled, via a press release, back on 3rd April 2019.
The corporation has announced that oil rates on test for this well have met expectations. The completed tests show that the oil production capability of this well at 12 to 15 barrels of oil per day. The well was perforated in the two deeper Poth sand zones, the Poth “B” and Poth “C”, and production testing in these two zones was completed immediately as planned. Work is now underway to install power and production equipment so the Corporation can commence commercial production on this well.
The corporation is now considering other possible drilling locations on this and adjacent leases, as identified when the Corporation commenced and completed its Deeper Oil Zones testing back in Q4 of 2018.
The corporation also announced that it continues to evaluate the Second Radial Jet Drilling well that the corporation last provided an update, via a press release, on 29th April 2019. The corporation still believes that the production potential, as previously released, on this well will be between 8 and 15 bopd. This well was originally completed in 1958 in the Poth “A” and now the newly radial jet horizontally drilled Poth “B” is producing large volumes of water, which is believed to be primarily coming from the depleted Poth “A” sand zone. The Corporation believes that the water from the Poth “A” sand zone is suppressing oil production from the deeper Poth “B” sand zone and the Corporation is now planning operations to seal off the Poth “A” sand zone and produce the well from only the Poth “B” zone. When this operation has been completed, the Corporation will be in a position to accurately announce the barrels per day deliverability from this well.
