FX Energy, Inc. reported that sidetracking operations at the Zaniemysl-3k well have started. The sidetrack is being drilled from the original Zaniemysl-3 surface location. The operation is designed to reach a higher structural position in the reservoir approximately 380 meters from the original Zaniemysl-3 bottom hole location. Seismic data indicate an additional 10 meters of pay can be accessed at this new bottom hole location.
The Zaniemysl-3 well was originally discovered in 2004 and began production in 2006. It has produced a total of 20.8 billion cubic feet of gas to date. The well is located in the Fences concession where PGNiG is the operator and owns 51% of the working interest; FX Energy and CalEnergy each own 24.5% of the Zaniemysl-3 well.
