Four Point Flow Tests Completed at 2 of Kentucky USA Energy's Wells
Kentucky USA Energy announced that four point flow tests have been completed at two of its wells, Walker #1 and Francis Grace #2. These tests, originally scheduled for mid December but delayed due to weather and scheduling, were completed by an independent gas analysis engineering company that was retained by Kentucky USA Energy.
Walker #1 yielded an absolute open flow rate of 111 Mcf (thousand cubic feet) per day. This well was drilled to a total depth (“TD”) of 2,430 feet. Shut in pressures built to approximately 753 psi. Francis Grace #2 yielded an absolute open flow rate of 100 Mcf per day. This well was drilled to a TD of 2,340 feet. Shut in pressures built to approximately 721 psi.
The four point flow test for each of these two wells was conducted with various orifices to establish the largest flow at the lowest surface pressure. The engineering company reported that flow volumes on each orifice were generally the same for all the various orifices used.
