Empyrean Energy, the onshore US condensate and gas exploration & production company, is pleased to report that early results from the recompletion of the Cartwright-1H well in the Wilcox interval have been successful and in line with or better than expectations.
The well has been turned to sales and is producing gas and oil (condensate). Empyrean holds a 10% Working Interest in the Riverbend Project and Cartwright-1H well.
The well produced an average of 745,000 cubic feet of gas per day ("cfgpd") with 40 barrels of oil per day
("bopd") for the first 7 days production post testing and an average of 755,000 cfgpd with 37 bopd for the first 14
days of production post testing.
The early oil production is in line with expectations (30-40 bopd) and the early gas production is above
expectations (200,000 -250,000 cfgpd). The choke setting is currently 12/64 with approximately 10 barrels of water being produced per day with the hydrocarbons.
Empyrean will make further announcements to update in due course as a greater production profile is achieved
and the operator notifies Empyrean of future development planning. Commenting today, Empyrean CEO, Tom Kelly said, "These early results are very encouraging for the initial recompletion goal of achieving economically viable production from the Cartwright-1H well."
