JKX Sees Koshekhablshoye Well Restored to Production

Eastern Europe-focused junior energy firm JKX Oil & Gas reported Monday that well-27 on its Koshekhablskoye field in southern Russia has been restored to production following repairs and recompletion.

The well is currently producing at a rate of 16.3 million cubic feet per day through a 27/64-inch choke, with a flowing well-head pressure of 3,370 pounds per square inch. JKX said that the well was completed, pressure tested and restored to production before undertaking a routine acid treatment of the carbonate reservoir to clean out the well and further stimulate production.

JKX Chief Executive Dr Paul Davies commented in a company statement:

"Restoration of production from well-27 brings the total field rate to in excess of 45 million cubic feet per day [MMcfd] from four wells, comfortably above the original design specification of our process plant. Our next task is to replace the damaged tubing in well-05 and bring it on production to utilize fully the recently upgraded plant capacity of 60 MMcfd."
