Testing Underway at Reef's Ausable Well
Reef Resources announced the contracted service rig is now on the Ausable #5 well in preparation for the testing and completion. The completion program comprises drilling out cement and a bridge plug in the production casing, swab testing of the lower Goat Island zone and completion of the Guelph formation using a multi-stage selective acid treatment. After acidization the well will be flow tested over a period of several days to ensure clean up. These operations are expected to take between 15 to 25 days to complete.
Reef previously announced the log analysis on the Ausable #5 well, with log analysis indicating 72 meters net pay of oil and NGL's in the Guelph and A2 formations.
Reef will be announcing test results after completion of Ausable #5 and the details of the next development steps in the Enhanced Oil Recovery - Natural Gas Liquids program in due course. The Ausable reef is currently on production and is generating revenue from the initial program which commenced in 4th quarter 2010.
