Manitok Energy’s eighth well of its 2012 drilling program in the Stolberg area of Alberta intersected the Cardium reservoir three times, with the lower intersection testing at an average rate of 460 b/d of light oil over 21 hours, according to the company.
The middle Cardium intersection tested at an average rate of 525 b/d (428 net) of light oil over 91 hours, the company reported.
Both intervals showed no appreciable decline and free flowed 49° API condensate to the surface over the respective test periods with little associated gas. Similar to the other horizontal wells in the program to date, the eighth well was not fracture stimulated. The highest Cardium intersection was not tested because Manitok believes it is a gas/oil zone, a news release stated.
The well is expected to be on production late in 4Q 2012. Manitok will produce the well from the two tested Cardium intersections. It is important to note that the potential initial production rate of the well cannot be determined by simply adding the test rates from the two intersections. Manitok anticipates that the initial production rate of the well will be at least at the higher rate of the two tested intersections mentioned.
