Galilee Energy Limited provides an update on testing at the Hoffer B1 well located in Lavaca County, Texas.
As previously indicated, open hole geophysical logs in the upper portion of the well were interpreted to demonstrate the presence of reservoir quality sandstones with 43ft of net pay. Testing of these zones has now commenced with extremely encouraging initial production test results.
The first of these zones in the Middle Midcox interval at 11,500-11,565 ft has been perforated and production tested. This interval contains two sandstones totalling about 17 ft of net pay, which were confirmed to be high deliverability and gas bearing.
Testing was conducted for 12 hrs after initial clean up with an average flow rate of 3.5 MMscfd of gas at just over 3500 psi flowing tubing pressure on a 17/64' choke. The well also flowed an undetermined amount of associated hydrocarbon liquids, thought to be in the range of 25-50 barrels of condensate per day.
