Oilex Preps for Flow Back at Cambay Well

Oilex advised that all eight stages of the fracture stimulation program of the horizontal section in the Cambay-76H well were pumped successfully and according to plan.

The well is currently being prepared for flow to surface to remove stimulation fluids from the formation (well clean-up phase). After the completion of the clean-up operations a flow test will be conducted.

The Cambay-76H "proof of concept" horizontal well is evaluating the production potential of the Y Zone interval of the extensive deep Eocene "tight" reservoirs in the onshore Cambay Production Sharing Contract area, Gujarat, India.
