Drilling Program

Ungani FW 1

Since the last report DDH1 Rig 31 has been rigged up and commenced coring operations. Coring operations have been commenced with a wireline retrievable coring system and the current operation is coring the casing shoe track.

Coring of the prognosed Ungani Dolomite reservoir section is expected to commence shortly.

Laurel Formation Tight Gas Pilot Exploration Program (TGS)

The Valhalla North 1 and Asgard 1 wells continued their strong production performance constantly uploading stimulation fluid and flowing hydrocarbons. Fluid recovery to date from the Valhalla North 1 and Asgard 1 wells is 73 percent and 35 percent respectively. Along with the favorable cleanup response of the wells, flowing well head pressure has been increasing with increased fluid recovery.

A limited number of production tests of separate zones has been undertaken, and together with the early results of fluid and tracer monitoring, the flow characteristics of individual zones have been able to be monitored. Although stabilized rates have still not been obtained due to continued fluid recovery, individual zones have been flowing at unstabilized rates through the flare estimated to be from 0.5 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) to over 2.0 MMcf/d. Definitive data on liquids content has not been obtained to date, however, the rates at Valhalla North are estimated to be similar to those seen in the first flowback period of some 35 to 40 barrels of liquids per million cubic feet of gas.

Due to the encroaching wet season it has now been decided to suspend the testing operations. During the suspension period the data gathered will be analyzed to plan the forward program.
