First Calgary Petroleums completes well testing in Algeria
First Calgary Petroleums (FCP) has completed testing on the MLE-3 appraisal well located on Block 405b in Algeria.
The MLE-3 well is located 3.7 kilometers east of the MLE-2 appraisal well. The MLE-3 well was drilled to total depth of 4,497 meters and encountered 121 meters of hydrocarbon net pay over multiple intervals.
Production testing resulted in combined production flow rates of 24,743 barrels of oil equivalent per day, comprising approximately 127 million cubic feet of gas per day and 3,643 barrels of condensate per day at 2,000 psi flowing tubing head pressure. Two of the tested pay intervals encountered in the well did not contribute to the flow rates. Both of these intervals will be tested in future wells.
The company further announces drilling on the MLE-4 appraisal well, located 4.9 kilometers southwest of the MLE-3 well, has reached a depth of 4,400 meters as at October 20, 2003 with a projected total depth of 4,600 meters. An intermediate logging run and a reservoir pressure survey were conducted over the Carboniferous and Upper Devonian reservoirs, to a depth of 3,650 meters. — (menareport.com)
