Heritage Oil to production test deeper horizons in Kingfisher well in Uganda

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/15/2007, Location: Africa

Heritage Oil Corporation announced that it is preparing to production test deeper intervals in the Kingfisher-1A deviated exploration well in Block 3A, Uganda. The Company is planning to test three intervals with a total thickness of 44 metres between 2,260 and 2,367 metres.

A shallower interval, at a depth of 1,783 metres, was tested successfully in the Kingfisher-1 well in November 2006, producing 4,120 bopd over a 10 metre interval. The tested oil was light (c. 30 degrees API) and sweet with a low gas-oil ratio and some associated wax. Flow data from the test indicated the reservoir had an extremely high permeability of over 2,000 milliDarcies.

Kingfisher-1A was drilled to a total depth of 3,195 metres, which was determined to be close to the limit of the rig's operational capability. Wire-line logs and formation pressure testing have evidenced encouraging indications of hydrocarbons over the planned test intervals, the thickest of which is 21 metres.

Heritage currently anticipates that it will commence testing within 10 days. The test program is scheduled to take up to three weeks. Test equipment has remained at the wellsite following the initial successful test of the Kingfisher-1 well.
