The well was drilled to a total depth of 3,603 meters in May 2007. Log and drilling information indicated 2 significant hydrocarbon zones in the Upper Spirit River Formation. Both zones are approximately 8-10 meters thick with sand qualities similar to those encountered in the 11-16 discovery well.
The lower zone was perforated over a 6 meter interval and flow tested at a stabilized flow rate of 12.5 Mmcf/d at 3,900 psig flowing pressure. Bottom hole pressure was measured at 8,558 psig.
RSX and its partner will begin commingling discussions with the AEUB prior to completing the upper zone. Once commingling approvals have been received, RSX expects to complete and put on production the Upper Spirit River zone.
The completed zone will be tied-in and on-production by August 1, 2007. Initial production rates are expected to be 12-13 Mmcf/d gross (800-900 Boepd net) and production and flowing pressures will be closely monitored. Production rates may be increased as dictated by flow pressure information.
A central dehydrator capable of 30 Mmcf/d of throughput has been acquired and installed at the 6-29 meter station one mile to the north.
RSX has an average working interest of 70% in 32 sections of land in the Hinton area. The company has documented 39-44 potential exploration and development locations on company interest lands of which 15-20 are on 100% RSX lands.
