Diaz Cases 1st Lloydminster Well
Diaz Resources has successfully drilled and cased the Lloyd HZ 105/15-18-48-1W4 well. This is the first of four horizontal Lloydminster heavy oil wells which Diaz plans to drill in the 3rd quarter of 2011.
The Lloyd HZ 105/15-18-48-1W4 well encountered 709 meters of oil saturated porous sand in the Lloydminster zone. Based on geological samples, the reservoir section encountered in this well appears to be of higher quality than the existing offset Lloyd HZ 100/15-18-48-1W4 well, which has produced over 18,000 barrels of oil, to date.
The second well, in the current Lloydminster drilling program, Lloyd HZ 106/15-18-48-1W4, began drilling on July 30, 2011. Both wells are anticipated to be on production in approximately 2 weeks time, after the drilling rig has moved off the production lease site.
