PetroTech Oil and Gas, Inc. announced it is once again operational in its Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) project on the Brown lease in the Bartlesville zone in northeast Oklahoma.
Harsh weather conditions throughout the Midwest in the first half of February forced a temporary shutdown in the Company's drilling operations. Cement casing will be poured on Thursday, and hopefully shoot the well a few days after if the weather holds out. Production is back online, and despite the most difficult winter in ages, the project is on-schedule with 4 Phase I wells currently producing gas at 40 MCF per day, and 18 additional Phase II wells forecasted to be operational in the coming months. Current production follows a successful revitalization program including all access roads, tank battery and well sites; repair or replacement of all electrical systems; installation of a triplex injection pump for proper wastewater disposal; and completion of a Manual Integrity Test (MIT) required for state inspection approval.
