United Oil & Gas PLC (UOG) announced that the preliminary tests for its ASH-4 showed that its production flow rates reached 2,101 barrels of per day (bbl/d) of oil in addition to 3 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscf/d) from the Alam El Bueib (“AEB”) reservoir on a maximum 40/64″ choke.
In a statement, the company added that on a reduced, 32/64″ choke, which is expected to be more representative of the producing flow rates, the well flowed at 1,325 bbl/d and 1.8 mmscf/d.
UOG said that the well is expected to be tied into the existing facilities and brought on stream in the coming days and the rig will move to drill the fifth well in the company’s development program.
On this occasion, UOG’s CEO, Brian Larkin commented “We are very pleased with the news of the ASH-4 initial well test result. It is expected that the well will be brought onstream in the coming days and will immediately contribute production and revenue for the Company.”
“The ASH field has proved to be a prolific area of the Abu Sennan licence and we are pleased to be reporting this positive well test result, as we move to drill the final well of the 2022 drilling programme. This will be the ASW-1X exploration well (previously named ASF-1X) which is targeting 8mmbbls of gross recoverable resources,” Larkin added.
