United Oil & Gas Company (UOG) announced successful test results and production from the Al Jahraa-13 development well (“AJ-13”) in the Abu Sennan license, which is operated by Kuwait Energy Egypt, according to a press release.

The AJ-13 well has now been tied into the existing facilities and brought into production at an initial rate of approximately 600 barrels of oil per day (bbl/d) gross on a 48/64″ choke. Furthermore, these results came in less than eight days from completion, thereby the well successfully ramped up production and revenue to the company.

It’s worth noting that the AJ-13 well was tested with flow rates of 897 bbl/d and 0.95 million standard cubic feet per day of gas (mmscf/d) on a 64/64″ choke; and 623 bbl/d and 0.47 mmscf/d gas on a 32/64″ choke.

The well is the fifth and final well in the Abu Sennan 2021 drilling programme. The ECDC-6 rig, used to drill the AJ-13 well, will now move to drill the ASD-2 development well, the first well in the 2022 campaign. The ASD-2 well follows on from the exploration success at the ASD-1X well. It will target the Abu Roash reservoirs in a more northerly part of the same structure, aiming to access the upside reserves and accelerate production from this field.
