Blackbird Energy Inc. plans to spud its first horizontal well at its Mantario Oil Project in the second quarter of 2014, subject to weather and rig availability. The well will be spud from a surface location at 16-1-26-25W3 with a horizontal lateral length of 2,625 feet (800 meters).
The trajectory of the horizontal well has been established using Blackbird's proprietary high resolution 3D seismic and the Company's existing well control. Blackbird holds a 70- percent operated working interest in the project.
This planned horizontal well is the follow-up to the successful A15-6-26-24W3 (A15-6) discovery well that encountered a 66-foot (20-meter) pay section and is still producing in excess of 20 barrels per day with minimal water.
