Egdon Resources commences an Extended Well Test (EWT) at the Wressle-1 oil and gas discovery in licence PEDL180, located to the east of Scunthorpe, where Egdon operates with a 25% interest.
During initial testing, the Wressle-1 well produced oil and gas from three discrete reservoir intervals, the Ashover Grit, the Wingfield Flags, and the Penistone Flags as previously reported. At the end of those test operations, a completion was installed in the well to cater for a subsequent pumped EWT over the oil productive zones in the Ashover Grit and the Penistone Flags.
Surface facilities and other equipment required for the EWT including a beam pump (“nodding donkey”), down-hole pump, and pump rods have now been installed.
The EWT will focus first on the Ashover Grit , which will be tested for up to 28 days to determine production rates under pumped conditions. During February this zone flowed 80 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) and 47 thousand cubic feet of gas per day during a 16 hour main flow period. The oil is of good quality with a gravity of 39-40° API.
