The expansion of compression facilities at Dejour's 75% owned Woodrush project in the Peace River Arch, NE British Columbia has been completed and is expected to result in increased gross production for the project of approximately 1,200 MCF per day (200 BOE per day) when reconnected to the Spectra pipeline by month end. Operational enhancements, combined with better terms for transportation and sales, is expected to increase overall gross production for the project to approximately 650 BOE per day with netbacks per barrel of oil equivalent targeted to improve by an estimated 15 percent.
"The operational enhancements achieved allow us to maximize our existing production from this project," said Hal Blacker, President and COO of Dejour. "This additional cash-flow will assist in the support of our drill program for 2010, including 3 wells to be drilled/completed during Q1 at Woodrush."
As part of the development plan for Woodrush, Dejour has now acquired and is currently processing a $1 million, three-component, 3D seismic program. Processing of this seismic data is targeted to be completed mid to late February 2010. Dejour anticipates the results of the seismic survey will allow the Company to confirm additional targets for development drilling. The Company also expects to define future development locations over the entire Woodrush pool, possibly extending the pool to both the north and south of the discovery well over a maximum of three sections of land. Additionally, a best possible completion profile will be developed for well D-81, drilled in December 09, which reached its target in a high quality Halfway sand, containing approximately two meters of crude oil and three meters of natural gas.
A drilling rig is currently on-site at Woodrush and completion of the 2009-10 drilling program is targeted for the end of March 2010. The Woodrush project currently consists of six natural gas and oil wells with associated production facilities. Dejour is the operator of this project.
