Stream O&G Ramps Up Production by 35% in Albania
Stream Oil & Gas announced a further production increase, following a further successful well re-completion, in line with its development strategy.
The Company's first mid-depth workover on the Cakran-Mollaj field delivered an oil production increase of 110 bopd (single well), representing an average well improvement exceeding 500%, compared to baseline production of 15 bopd/well. A second mid-depth recompletion in this field is underway with positive results expected before March end.
As a result of this initial workover the Company's daily gross crude oil production has increased to 793 bopd, up from 683 bopd. Net production to the Company increased to 420 bopd, up from 310 bopd, a 35% increase and a second substantial production increase for the Company in less than a month. These figures do not include Company's typical gas production of 690 MCFD and 47 bbl/MMCF NGLs.
Subsequent to the Company's recently announced complete takeover of the Cakran-Mollaj field (25 currently producing wells and additional 37 non producing wells also being considered for re-activation) and these positive workover results, the Company is planning to accelerate its 2010/2011 workover programs. The Company is also preparing to perform full-depth workovers which based on our experience to date are forecast to yield a further production increases.
Dr. Sotirios Kapotas, Stream's CEO said, "Stream continues to prove the resource potential of its assets and our ability to deliver results, further substantiating Stream's ambitious growth plans."
