Aurelian strikes 100-meter gas column in Poland’s Trzek-2 well
Aurelian Oil & Gas has obtained good gas readings and core indicating an estimated 100-meter gas column in its first multi-fracced horizontal well drilled in Poland's Rotliegendes Sandstone.
Aurelian said today that the Trzek-2 well, being drilled with the Nafta Pila IDM 2000 drilling rig, part of the company's Siekierki Tight Gas Project on the Poznan Block, penetrated the top reservoir with its vertical section and, following coring and logging, it will be sidetracked and drilled horizontally toward the 91-meter gas column discovered by the Trzek-1 well. Completion of frac and flowtesting is expected during December in line with planned well schedule and budget, with Halliburton carrying out the frac job.
Trzek-2 is targeting approximately 16 to 28 bcf of recoverable gas reserves on the 346 bcf, net to Aurelian, Siekierki Field which is expected to be onstream in the second half of 2011. Following the completion on the Trzek-2 well, the rig will be mobilized to the Trzek-3 drillsite.
The Siekierki Field is located in the Poznan license area which is 100% held and operated by Energia Zachod, a company owned 90% by Aurelian and 10% by Avobone Poland.
