Leni Gas & Oil says that well GY-667 at the Goudron Field in Trinidad has undergone a series of initial production tests after perforating a 44-foot interval in the Lower Cruse Sandstones resulting in a calculated open-hole flow rate of 540 barrels of oil per day (bopd).
The well is presently producing 40 degree API gravity water-free oil at a rate of 142 bopd through a 7/32-inch choke with a well-head flowing pressure of 420 psi. Higher rates up to over 220 bopd have been successfully tested, however, temporary field-wide production constraints are in place until the additional sales capacity is on-stream in the next week.
Neil Ritson, LGO's Chief Executive, commented,"The results from GY-667, the Company's first completion in the Lower Cruse reservoir, have far exceeded our initial estimates of 60 bopd. We have yet to confidently locate the thickest zone of Lower Cruse Sandstones and therefore we are excited that a relatively thin interval is producing so prolifically. This is very encouraging for further potential in the Lower Cruse within the field."
