3legs Resources – an exploration company focused on shale developments in Europe – announced on Friday that following the completion of the multi-stage stimulation programme on the Polish Lublewo LEP-1ST1H lateral well, the well has now been put on a planned long term flow test.
After drilling out the bridge plugs used for the stimulation programme, cleaning up of the well commenced on 6 August, initiating the long term test. The well was temporarily shut in to install bottom-hole pressure gauges on 12 August, and then reopened. The well continues to flow back frac fluid and hydrocarbons, and as at 14 August approximately 12% of the frac fluid originally injected had been recovered. The well has not required nitrogen assistance.
The test will enable an assessment of the well’s long term potential to flow natural gas and liquids, and will enable the collection of further data regarding the reservoir properties of the Sasino shale formation.
Kamlesh Parmar, Chief Executive of 3Legs Resources, commented on the results: “The Lublewo LEP-1ST1H lateral well is a key milestone in our exploration programme in Poland and we are very pleased to announce that this well has now been put on long term test. The operations to bring the well into test production have gone very smoothly and we are delighted to see the well has flowed from the beginning without assistance.”
As a first mover in Poland, 3legs Resources has six exploration and prospection concessions covering approximately 4,387 sq. km (1,084,000 acres) in the onshore Baltic Basin region of Northern Poland.
