BNK Petroleum Inc. has fracture stimulated 30 percent of the Emery 17-1H well (98.7% interest). The Company has decided to flowback the well at this time and fracture stimulate the rest of the lateral at a later date. The well began flowback today.
The Company has just finished drilling the Nickel Hill 36-3H well (99.4% interest) and has cemented the casing in place. The Company employed revised drilling practices on the Nickel Hill 36-3H that were successful in avoiding some issues encountered in the Emery 17-1H well.
The Emery 17-1H issues impacted drilling time and cost and necessitates remedial work prior to fracture stimulation of the rest of the lateral. The Company expects to utilize these new drilling practices in future Caney wells and believes they will enable significant future savings. After drilling the Nickel Hill 36-3H well the Company's net acreage in the Tishomingo Field has increased to about 16,200 acres.
