FX Energy, Inc. plans to frac a tight gas zone in its Gorka Duchowna-1 well in Block 246 in central Poland, immediately west of the Fences Concession area, and approximately 5 kilometers south of the Bronsko and Koscian gas fields. A drill stem test of an interval between 2,261-2,290 meters recovered gas and drilling mud with no water. The methane content of the gas was reported as 69%. Interpreted porosity in the zone ranges from 3% to 7%. The Company plans to cement a 5 inch liner in the well to 2,315 meters, and prepare to frac the well. Specific timing of the planned frac of the well has not been determined. Block 246 and the Gorka Duchowna well are 100% owned and operated by FX Energy.
Jerzy Maciolek, Vice President of International Exploration, commented, "The Gorka Duchowna-1 well intersected 200 meters of tight Carboniferous formation, with shows of gas that warrant fracking in the zones of better sand development. We hope to complete the frac after the winter season. Additionally, this well provided very important information about carboniferous rocks, TOC and tectonicity of this region, and it will serve as an anchor for future exploration efforts."
