MOG Confirms 'Excellent Permeability' at Italy Well

change text size

Mediterranean Oil & Gas Plc (MOG) announced the safe and successful completion of a production test on the well Civita 1 in the Aglavizza Production Concession, Italy, confirming excellent permeability.

MOG announced Jan. 7 that its wholly owned subsidiary Medoilgas Civita Ltd ("MCL") was awarded the Aglavizza Production Concession and that the Company planned to undertake a production test of Civita 1 in January 2013. The step-rate production test and build up analysis was successfully completed Jan. 30 and has confirmed the production potential of Civita 1.

A three-stage step rate test was conducted with the following results:

  • Stage 1
    • Conducted 5 hour production flow test at a 1/4" choke setting:
      • Stabilized flow was achieved after three minutes at a rate of 50,300 scm/day (1,776,345 scf/day) with negligible water production.
      • Flowing well head pressure was drawn down by 3.5 percent of static well head pressure.
  • Stage 2
    • Conducted 5 hour production flow test at a 3/16" choke setting:
      • Stabilized flow was achieved after five minutes at a rate of 27,700 scm/day (978,226 scf/day) with negligible water production.
      • Flowing well head pressure was drawn down by 1.6 percent of static well head pressure.
  • Stage 3
    • Conducted 5 hour production flow test at a 1/8" choke setting:
      • Stabilized flow was achieved after thirty minutes at a rate of 12,200 scm/day (430,843 scf/day) with negligible water production.
      • Flowing well head pressure was drawn down by 0.4 percent of static well head pressure.

Initial static reservoir pressure was restored within a few seconds after shutting in the well at the end of the production tests.

The results of the production test confirm excellent permeability and no near-well bore formation damage. MOG estimates that the Aglavizza field can be profitably developed, with first gas due in early 2015.

Dr. Bill Higgs, Chief Executive of Mediterranean Oil and Gas, commented:

"We are pleased to have successfully completed the production test at Civita 1 and the results confirm the economic potential of this asset. The team is now working towards finalizing the development plan for Algavizza ahead of an investment decision in late 2013."
