San Leon says that the Kety exploration well has reached a total depth of 705m MDBRT (measured depth below rotary table). The gas encountered is considered uncommercial following testing, and the well will be plugged and abandoned.
The Kety well, which is on the Bestwina concession in Karpaty, Poland, was targeting gas in the Miocene sandstone. It is apparent that several sandstones exist within the target depths, but an overlying fault appears to have compromised the seal, resulting in low gas saturations. Open-hole well testing was performed on three intervals, with only minor gas production. The cost of open-hole testing was around €150,000 gross.
The rig will now move to the second well in the three well drilling programme, the Gierattowice prospect on the Bielsko-Biata concession in Karpaty, targeting 4 Bcf of mid-case recoverable gas in two target reservoirs - the Upper Carboniferous sandstone being the primary target with the Lower Carboniferous limestone as a secondary target.
