Aurelian Discovers Gas Column in Romania

Aurelian Oil and Gas has discovered a 16-meter gas column in the Dornesti Sud-1 well on its Suceava Block EIV-1 concession, Romania. The well flow test produced gas at a rate of 25,000Sm3/d at a pressure of 32 bar with an AOF of 80,000Sm3/d.

Aurelian will look to tie the well into the Bilca Gas Plant during 2008.

Aurelian Oil and Gas PLC announced on 2 November that the Boistea-1 well, Cuejdiu Block EIII-3, in Romania will be completed to allow a long-term flow test of the interval 1783 to 1785 meters.

The test will take place during January 2008.

"Dornesti Sud 1 is the first well drilled by Aurelian on this block and we are delighted that it is a discovery," said Aurelian Managing Director Michael Seymour. "There are several other similar leads on this large block, (over 4,000 sq kms), which are not yet fully covered by seismic.

"The tie-in to the Bilca facilities should be a relatively simple operation to complete; and in the light of this discovery we will also be looking very closely at a further well in the Dornesti area in 2008."
