Predator Oil & Gas Holdings Plc (PRD), the Jersey-based Oil and Gas Company, provides an operations update on its progress onshore Trinidad.

Fram Exploration Trinidad Ltd. (FRAM), the operator of the Inniss-Trinity field and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Columbus Energy Resources PLC has successfully completed workover operations to survey downhole the AT-5X well in preparation for future CO2 injection and enhanced oil production.

The preferred Predator downhole completion design to potentially achieve optimum efficiency for CO2 EOR injection by isolating specific reservoir sands was determined as being operationally viable. In preparation for CO2 EOR operations a key interval of reservoir section chosen for the first CO2 injectivity test was successfully isolated from the deeper reservoirs with the setting of a Cast Iron Bridge Plug.

The workover rig will now move on to survey the AT-4 well.

A further operational update will be issued once the downhole well survey results have been assessed for AT-4.

Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive of Predator, commented:

We are pleased that the workover of AT-5X has been successfully completed and that the first stage of the operational strategy for focussed CO2 injection has been proven to be possible to implement in old producing wells. This strategy is unique in terms of what has previously been attempted using C02 in Trinidad and we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. We thank the Columbus Energy operating team for their significant efforts in achieving a challenging task that helps to de-risk the Pilot CO2 EOR Project.
