Gulf Western Puts Third Brushy Creek Well on Production

Gulf Western Petroleum says that the O'Neal Smith No. 1 four point flow test has been completed and the results are 208 Mcf gas per day with a FTP (Flowing Tubing Pressure) of 950 psi on a 5/64" choke. The O'Neal Smith No. 1 will initially be produced from a 12 foot sand section from 1851'-1863'. The well was perforated from 1854' to 1860' and is now flowing into the sales line.

The O'Neal Smith No. 1 is the third and final well completed and put into production in the Brushy Creek VI Project. The Brushy Creek VI Project, located in Lavaca county Texas, was a three well prospect generated by utilizing newly acquired 3D seismic data. The Williams No. 6 and the Goodrich-Poindexter No. 1, the other two previously announced wells in this project, are also hooked into the sales line.

President, Sam Nastat stated, "We have now successfully completed the Brushy Creek V and Brushy Creek VI Projects, and we are very pleased with the results. We currently have ten Frio wells producing and are scheduled to have one additional well, the Nichol's No. 1, which is in the Brushy Creek IV project, tested and hooked up to the sales line before the end of the year."
