First Phase of Ungani 1st1 Workover at WA's Ungani Field Has Been Completed

Buru Energy Limited reported Tuesday that the first phase of the Ungani 1st1 workover in Ungani field in Canning Basin, Western Australia has been completed with the running of a downhole plug and acquisition of a cement bond log.

Production testing of the well flowed at some 1,500 barrels of fluid per day (900 barrels of oil per day) with a 30 percent water cut. On an equivalent basis prior to the workover it was flowing 300 barrels of oil per day on a 60 percent water cut.

Options to restore the well to fully dry oil production are now being reviewed in the light of these encouraging results.

Commenting on these results Buru's Executive Chairman Eric Streitberg said:

"This is a very encouraging first step in restoring the productive capacity of this well and clearly demonstrates the high flow rate capacity of the Ungani reservoir. We will now be reviewing the most cost effective way to ge the well back on full production given that we now have access to a rig which gives us a number of additional options."
