Oilex Begins Fracture Stimulation Operations at Cambay-77H Well in Gujarat

During the fracture stimulation operations, Oilex will inform the market using the following update milestones.

  • Commencement of the Stage 1 fracture stimulation
  • Completion of the fracture stimulation program (consisting of 4 Stages)
  • Completion of the plug mill-out operations

Announcements in relation to flow back and production testing will be dictated by the well response to the stimulation program.

Managing Director of Oilex, Ron Miller, said;

“We are pleased that the first stage fracture stimulation is now underway. As indicated previously, Oilex has taken a cautious approach during rig up and equipment testing to mitigate risks arising after fracture operations start. The immediate pressure increase at surface after the initial perforation is a positive sign. The collection of reservoir property data using the micro fracture technique is important for the evaluation of the well’s performance during production testing which remains on track to commence in early August 2014, after a flowback and clean up period.”
