Galilee Energy Limited has commenced testing at the Hoffer B1 well in Lavaca County, Texas. A total of approximately 200 ft has been identified for potential perforation and testing in a number of different zones. It is anticipated that up to 10 tests may be required to fully evaluate the potential of the well.
As previously indicated, open hole geophysical logs in the upper portion of the well are interpreted to demonstrate the presence of reservoir quality sandstones. These zones have the potential in their own right to deliver gas volumes consistent with pre-drill expectations (subject to successful production testing).
In the lower zones, the cased hole logging suite provides less quantitative information on reservoir quality, but the identified zones have been correlated with mudlog gas shows to define gross sandstones which warrant testing, albeit with a lower level of expectation.
