A completion string was run and well testing operations were completed with a rig-less testing unit in March 2007. An initial production test of the Upper Sabil Formation confirmed the presence of a gas column and flowed 12.1 MMscf per day through a 48/64 inch choke, with a gas to condensate ratio of 30-35 bbl/ MMscf. The absolute open flow potential is calculated to be 16.7 MMscf per day. The well was suspended as a gas and condensate discovery.
