Testing Commences on St. Edouard Horizontal Well

Questerre reported that production testing has begun on the St. Edouard No. 1A horizontal well in the St. Lawrence Lowlands, Quebec.

St. Edouard is the first horizontal well to target the middle Utica interval. The well was recently successfully completed with 8-stage fracture stimulations in the 1000m long horizontal section. During the completion, micro-seismic monitoring was conducted using the adjacent vertical well, St. Edouard No. 1, to assess effectiveness of the fracs. Initial cleanup and flowback is underway with preliminary results expected near the end of February.

Questerre also reported that drilling operations have been completed on the second horizontal, Gentilly No. 2 in the Lowlands earlier this month. The well was drilled and cased to a measured depth of 2693m including an approximate 700m horizontal lateral.
