SDX Energy Inc., the North Africa focused oil and gas company, has announced the results of the well test conducted on the SD-1X well following the recent natural gas discovery at South Disouq, Egypt where the Company has a 55% Operated working interest.

The SD-1X well was drilled to a total depth of 7,777 feet, and encountered 82 feet of net pay with an average porosity of 25% in the Abu-Madi section.

Well test operations have now commenced and the well has successfully flowed dry natural gas at a stabilised rate of 25.8 MM scf/d on a 48/64-inch choke. This flow rate exceeded initial expectations and was limited by the surface facilities put in place to test the well. The well has now been shut in for an initial build-up after which a series of additional flowing periods will be conducted and fluid samples taken. The results from the well testing program will be integrated into the on-going reserve evaluation work. The results of that exercise will then be incorporated into an early development plan proposal for discussion with our partners and the authority. This information will be included in a future release to the market over the summer.

Working with its partners, SDX will now aim to bring the discovery into commercial production as soon as possible.

Paul Welch, President and CEO of SDX, comments, “Underpinned by the strong local gas demand, today’s news is highly positive and confirms the overall success of the recent SD-1X campaign. Not only do we have this excellent result in the upper Abu Madi section, we also remain very upbeat about the oil potential in the deeper Cretaceous horizon, where a working petroleum system was also discovered.”

“Whilst the work of bringing the gas discovery into production is our primary focus, we are also planning for further drilling in the lower Cretaceous age horizons where we see additional potential. South Disouq remains, however, one strand in the SDX story. Concurrently, we are extremely active across the rest of our North Africa portfolio, which will include development and exploration drilling in Morocco in the next quarter. We look forward to providing further updates over the coming months,” adds Welch.
