TransGlobe Energy announced the successful recompletion of SGZ-6X well into the lower Bahariya reservoir at South Ghazalat concession in the western Desert, a press release issued by TransGlobe Energy cited.

The well started production on March 21, 2021 at a field estimated production rate of 3,600 barrels per day (bb/d) of light oil on a 32/64 inch choke with 0% watercut.

This well was restricted on March 22, 2021 to a field estimated 1,000 bb/d of light oil on a reduced choke, to facilitate reservoir data gathering and preparation of an effective reservoir management plan for the lower Bahariya at the prementioned location.

Per the statement, work to expand early production facility at South Ghazalat has been completed while further update is expected once the plan is developed.

TransGlobe Energy’s President and CEO, Randy Neely expressed his satisfaction with such achievement and said “We are excited to announce the successful recompletion of SGZ-6X into the lower Bahariya reservoir at our South Ghazalat concession. Prudent reservoir management in the short-term will ensure optimal resource development and maximize future value for shareholders. ”

“This approach will allow us to maximize future economic off-take from SGZ-6X, firm up the appraisal of this pool with SGZ-6A and optimize our exploration plans on the SGZ-7B prospect.” he added.

It is noteworthy  that the EDC-64 rig has now rigged down at SGZ-6X, paving its way to the Company’s Eastern Desert concessions, where operations on the budgeted twelve well of 2021 drilling program are expected to begin in April .
