- Hunt Rig 3 stacking at Surprise
- Options for drilling second well under review
- Extended Production Testing with oil sales contract planned
Central Petroleum Limited (ASX:CTP) (“Central” or the “Company”) advises that further initial flow testing of the Surprise-1 Re-entry H (S1REH) well has finished after recording a sustained flow rate via a 32/64” choke of 380 bbls/day with a low 4.4% drilling fluid and/or water cut as previously announced.
The final PBU (Pressure Build Up) was 523 PSI.
It is planned to seek agreement on a sales contract and the necessary permitting, approvals and logistics for oil production during an EPT (Extended Production Test), anticipated to commence within 2-3 months and to extend for up to several months. It is possible that further improvements in flow rate may be recorded during the EPT.
All relevant geological, petrophysical and flow testing data gathered from the drilling of S1REH as well as all available seismic data is being prepared for comprehensive analysis to better define the reservoir potential and design the most appropriate EPT.
