Powder River Completes Springhill Project
Powder River Basin Gas Corp. has completed the rework of the wells on the Springhill, Louisiana project. The project had 20 wells scheduled for re-work and re-completion, of which 18 were producers and 2 salt water disposal wells.
Of the 18 wells, two were determined to be unserviceable and will be shut-in. This leaves a total of 16 producing and two injection wells. All downhole work is completed including the replacement of rods, tubing, pumps and such other equipment as required. All development costs were funded through the Company's strategic marketing program.
The Utility Company is currently setting transformers, meters and electric equipment on the last wells and will be finished within ten days. Two wells are being turned on each day to balance the system without overload.
The wells will pump for approximately 30 to 45 days before the fluid levels stabilize and production levels are constant. Powder River Basin Gas Corp. experienced several delays caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which created shortages in material, equipment and manpower as well as electricity.
"We are pleased to have this project completed. Along with the installation of modern equipment and the systematic chemical treatment to the wells we expect to maximize production, while working within a conservative controlled operating cost base," stated Powder River Basin Gas Corp. CEO Brian Fox.
Powder River Basin Gas Corp. is active in production, acquisition, and marketing of crude oil and natural gas properties.
