("President" or the "Company")
Drilling success in Salta, Argentina
President Energy (AIM: PPC), the energy company with a diverse
portfolio of energy assets provides an update on its oil and gas
operations in Argentina and Louisiana
-- Drilling of well DP-2001 reached the target depth safely with electric logging concluded
-- The logs show the well is virtually analogous to the well
DP-1001 which was drilled in 2010 in the same field which had an
initial production rate of 40m(3) /d and is still in continuous
-- Following the encouraging results casing running is taking
place and the new well will be tested in January
-- Workover of Triche well in Louisiana progressing with promising progress
Drilling of the DP-2001 well at the Dos Puntitas field, Puesto
Guardian Concession (President 100%) safely and successfully
reached the planned target depth of 3,225 metres, on time and
budget with encouraging results.
A full suite of electric logs, including pressure testing, has
been acquired over three separate runs which, on a preliminary
basis, indicate that this new oil well DP-2001 is virtually
analogous to the well DP-1001 drilled at the same field in
The electric logs on DP2001 show a total net oil pay of some 10
metres over two intervals. Pressure tests show an average depletion
of 10% from original pressure with good mobility shown in each of
the spot tests which are all positive signs taking into account Dos
Puntitas is a producing field.
It is encouraging that the older well DP-1001, drilled at the
time by the then operator Puesto Guardian at a cost of
approximately US$6 million is still in continuous production and
had an initial production level of 40m(3) /d of oil. After 11 years
the well is still producing 9m(3) /d.
The new well DP-2001 which has been drilled by President faster
and at nearly half the cost, is now being cased and thereafter
cemented prior to completion and testing with a workover rig. This
rig will be mobilised to start work in the field in January so
that, all being well, it can complete and test both this well and
the next well in the sequence, DP-2003. It is testing that will
provide the acid test as to produceability of any well.
After casing of the present well, the rig will move to the
location for that second well DP-2003 where spudding is estimated
to take place in about 10 days time.
The workover of the Triche well is ongoing, the well has been
cleaned up and the lower open perforations, considered to be
generating a higher water cut, have been successfully cemented.
The top of the previously perforated interval has now been
re-perforated with a previously un-addressed interval higher up the
hole saved for later as there is good pressure seen from the
perforations already made. The higher interval has been made ready
to be completed rigless at a later date.
Promising progress has been made to date and whilst running a
day or two behind schedule, the well should be back on production
within the first half of December.
M(3) /d means cubic metres of oil per day
