Nordic Places Two Additional Wells on Production at Lloydminsteradmin
Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd., announced that the Company has brought two new wells on production at Lloydminster, Alberta, bringing the total to six now on production in the region. Average production last week for the six wells totalled 180 barrels of oil per day (BOPD), or 30 BOPD per well, in line with the Company’s projections given earlier this year.
Overall, the Company now has 12 wells on production in Alberta, including five natural gas wells and one Coal Bed Methane (CBM) well in Joffre. Production levels now stand at approximately 260 BOE/D(x), a 225% increase over the 80 BOE/D reported at the end of the second quarter.
This production number is expected to rise even further during the fourth quarter, as the Company is currently surveying three new well locations at Lloydminster, with drilling expected to commence early in Q4. It is anticipated that each of these wells will also produce in the area of 30 BOPD.
Furthermore, at Joffre, Alberta, the Company’s new Belly River well has been drilled, cased and logged and testing is now underway. As stated previously, this well should come on production in the fourth quarter. Also at Joffre, the Company is in the process of obtaining another surface lease and expects to drill two new wells during the fourth quarter.
“With three more new wells expected in Lloydminster and another two in Joffre, along with the recently drilled well in Joffre, we should have 18 wells on production in the fourth quarter, resulting in continued increases in both our production volumes and revenue totals,” Mr. Benson stated.
At Preeceville, Saskatchewan, the re-entry of the 14-14 well has been completed. The well has been drilled and cased and the open hole logs are now being interpreted.
