Delta Oil and Gas report that the recently drilled and completed Donner #4 gas well, located in Newton County, Texas, has started producing natural gas and condensate and the first sales from this well have taken place. Delta and its partner, Hillcrest Resources, Ltd. (HRH:CA), recently drilled the well to a total depth of 7,510 feet and it was completed in the 7,400 Struma sand. The Struma sand is a known gas producer and has produced prolifically elsewhere in the Field.
The Donner #4 well was opened to sales flowing gas at a restricted rate of approximately 385,000 cubic feet per day on a severely restricted choke of 5/64th of an inch. The choke will be increased over the coming days as the contract Operator settles in on an optimum gas rate, expected to be in excess of 500,000 cubic feet per day.
