OPERATIONS REPORT: WORKOVER OPERATIONS COMMENCE AT RIDGE RUNNER 2-19 WELL LOCATED AT CLEAR CREEK, UTAH PROJECT
- Workover operation commences at Ridge Runner 2-19 well
- Ridge Runner 2-19 is located in proximity to other promising workover wells (RR 13-17, RR 11-17)
Marion Energy Limited (ASX: MAE, MAEO, MAEOA) advises that workover operations have commenced on the Ridge Runner 2 –19 (RR 2-19) well located at the Company’s Clear Creek, Utah project.
This well was drilled by Marion in 2006 and has been shut in since it was completed. It has subsequently been connected to the gathering system and pipeline. At the time, the well did not undergo formal testing, but during drilling operations extremely strong gas flows were observed similar to the RR 11-17 well. Management believes that this well is likely to be a significant producer for the Company.
The well is located on the same drill pad as the RR 13-17 and RR 11-17 wells where significant operational progress has already been made. As with all other wells currently undergoing workover operations, pumping activities have commenced to draw down the fluid level in the well. A level of approximately 200 feet above the pump is the target and this level is required before optimum production conditions can be achieved. The RR 2-19 well has a comparable pumping configuration to the RR 11-17 well with the fluid level in the well bore to be drawn down in a similar fashion.
The location of the RR 13-17, RR 11-17 and RR 2-19 wells on the same drilling pad will also enable workover operations on all three wells to occur in an extremely efficient manner.
The Company has a 100% working interest in the Clear Creek project.
Further updates will be provided as workover operations progress.
