San Leon Energy spuds the Rawicz-12 appraisal well on the 742 km2 Rawicz Concession in Poland's southern Permian Basin.
The well, which is operated by Palomar Natural Resources ("PNR"), is targeting the previously-discovered Rawicz gas accumulation in the Permian Rotliegendes sandstones. The well is estimated to take 45 days to reach a total depth of 1,900 meters and is being drilled by Poland's Exalo Drilling. A full testing program is planned immediately after drilling and completion of the well, assuming positive results.
PNR holds 65% and is operator of the concession, with San Leon holding the remaining 35%.
Oisin Fanning, Chairman of San Leon, commented,"This is a great opportunity for San Leon to establish first gas production in Poland. We are pleased to be working with PNR and are confident in their operational ability. Rawicz is a project that San Leon has worked hard to bring forward over the last three years, and we look forward to updating the market with results in due course."
