Pacific Energy Completes Two Wilmington Fields Well as Producers
Pacific Energy Resources announces the results of three recently drilled three wells in the Wilmington Oil field, in Long Beach California. Two of the wells, PERL 1 and PERL two were completed as production wells and the third well, PERL 1-I was completed as a water injection well. At present, PERL 1 is producing an average of 57 barrels of oil per day with an average water cut of 66%. PERL 2 is producing an average of 47 barrels of oil per day with an average water cut of 88.8%. Both wells are still in the clean up phase and have shown a steady increase in production rates. PERL 1-I is injecting about 600 barrels of water per day. As the impact of the injector well is felt by the new producers and the existing producers, we expect to see the beneficial impact on overall production.
The Company plans to continue drilling additional infill producers & injectors in the Wilmington field. Current plans call of drilling of two additional wells this year, 30 wells in 2007 and 30 in 2008, subject to rig availability.
