Transeuro Updates Ukrainian Operations
Transeuro Energy Corp. issued a weekly update on its Ukraine operations.
The well is drilling ahead at a depth of 3,364 metres with continuous background gas and connection gas up to 20% by volume. Following the gas kick at 3,332 metres, the mud weight was increased to 1.35 sg (specific gravity) and drilling resumed. A further gas kick occurred and mud weight was again increased, up to 1.47 sg. Drilling has again resumed, but the Rate of Penetration (ROP) has now dropped to 1 metre/hour and is expected to remain low until the middle of the C14 interval.
Over the next week the Company expects to drill to the 'Total Depth' (TD) of around 3,520 metres. Further pressure step increases may be encountered based on the data from nearby wells.
The Company also announces that Bruce Colwill is stepping down as Chief Financial Officer and will be replaced by Derek Page. We thank Bruce for his valuable contributions over the last 8 months and wish him every success in the future, and we welcome Derek on to the management team.
