AED Completes Flow Test on Puffin-8
|Wednesday, May 02, 2007
AED reports that the Puffin-8 production well offshore Australia has been flow tested at an estimated maximum rate of 11,660 stock tank barrels per day (stb/d) and that the flow rate was limited by the testing equipment deployed on the rig. AED also says that calculations show that the well is capable of flowing at a stabilized rate of 15-20,000 stb/d.
This rate is very similar to the Puffin-7 well. Puffin-8 will drain additional reserves to Puffin-7, and as the second well in the development, will give additional security of production.
