Questerre Reports on Pilot Horizontal Program in Quebec

Questerre Energy reported that the operator will spud the first horizontal well targeting the middle Utica in the St. Lawrence Lowlands this week.
The St. Edouard #1A horizontal well will be situated adjacent to the St. Edouard #1 vertical well that tested at 700 mcf/d from the middle Utica interval. Subject to final results, the well will be fracture stimulated and production tested. During stimulation, the existing vertical well will serve as a monitor for real-time micro-seismic imaging to validate stimulation effectiveness.

Michael Binnion, President and Chief Executive Officer of Questerre, commented, "The first well in the pilot horizontal well program is a key milestone towards commercializing the Utica shale play. We are looking forward to confirmation from the horizontal wells of the consistently excellent vertical well test results from the middle Utica."
