IGas Energy confirm 1400 feet of shale at Ellesmere Port

IGas declares preliminary results from the drilling of the Ellesmere Port exploration well.

The well was spudded on 15 November 2014 and, due in part to lessons learned on the previous wells, the well total depth (TD) was reached ahead of schedule on 12 December 2014.

The well encountered a thick section of the Coal Measure interval as well as a shale sequence before penetrating the key Dinantian limestone geophysical marker. The Coal Measure interval was approximately 800 feet thick and contained several seams.

A very significant shale section of approximately 1,400 feet was also drilled. Preliminary analysis suggests both the Sabden Shale and Bowland Shales have been encountered and cores have been acquired across these intervals. Significant gas indications were observed across the shale section.

The well, including the shale section, is being logged and the logs, together with the cores, will be sent away for further detailed analysis.
