Sino Gas & Energy Holdings Limited announced Tuesday that the first deviated exploration well tested in its 2016 program, LXDG-08, located onshore China, recorded a record single zone flow rate of 2.7 million standard cubic feet per day.
The flow rate was achieved without facture stimulation from the well’s He2 zone, which has a gross pay thickness of 32 feet and net pay of 16 feet. Sino Gas estimates that this single zone of LXDG-08 could produce over 3 MMscf/d at standard field operating pressures. The company also sees the potential to produce from at least two additional zones in this well.
Commenting on the flow test results, Sino Gas Managing Director, Glenn Corrie, said in a company statement:
“We are delighted with the single zone unfracked test result of 2.7 MMscf/d on Linxing (East). The flow rate achieved is a record for the company, underscoring the significant value that we see in our assets and demonstrates the ongoing improvements we are making in identifying reservoir drilling targets and maximising single well productivity. The planned Linxing (East) drilling program positions us to expand the already discovered area and submit a CRR later this year.”
