Royale Energy, Inc. says that the Nugget well discovered five natural gas filled formations on March 21, 2015.
On April 8th, one of the zones was perforated and tested with a stabilized rate of 1,108 Mcf per day on a 12/64th's choke.
The additional zones will remain behind pipe and will be completed after this zone is produced out. A nearby pipeline will allow a quick connection for the well to be put into production in April.
The Nugget's multiple pay zones have given the company several developmental follow up wells that will be drilled to increase production and reserves in the surrounding area.
