Transeuro: Testing Ops Underway at Ukraine Well
Transeuro updatde on its Ukraine operations as follows:
Operations are now underway for 'Test 2' of the four test program to fully appraise the 400m of reservoir drilled in the Karl-101 well. This second test will assess the C14 interval, with 40 meters of perforations over the interval from 3,333 to 3,396 meters, representing around 20% of the reservoir thickness. This interval is known to contain numerous 'reservoir sections' and 'fracture zones' and is therefore expected to flow strongly after perforating, similar to Test 1. For this reason the Company is not planning to acidize during the testing phase, but will defer the acidizing until the well is put on production. The test will involve a 24 hour flow period, followed by a 48 hour shut in to record down hole pressure data. Samples of gas and condensate will be collected during the flow period for analysis.
After completing 'Test 1' extended operations were required to recover the packer and perforating guns from the wellbore, however this was finally achieved and established that all the guns fired as planned. In order to proceed with 'Test 2' the perforation intervals of 'Test 1' have been temporarily suspended below a drillable bridge plug so that the interval can be accessed later for production. Samples of gas and condensate were collected and have been sent for analysis. The down hole pressure recorders were recovered and confirm that a stable flow was achieved during 'Test 1' of 0.5 mmcf/d (14,000 m3/d) equivalent to 108 boepd with condensate. 'Test 1' represented approximately 15% of the reservoir thickness.
