MEX-119 Well Results

 

Regal Petroleum plc (AIM: RPT), the AIM-quoted oil and gas exploration and production group, is pleased to announce the results of the MEX-119 well located at its Mekhediviska-Golotvshinska (MEX-GOL) gas and condensate field in Ukraine.

 

The MEX-119 well is a development well, targeting production from the B-20 reservoirs in the Visean formation. The well was spudded in February 2019 and drilled to a depth of 4,822 metres, which was slightly shallower than its planned depth, after the targeted horizons were encountered.

 

One interval, at a drilled depth of 4,804 - 4,816 metres, was perforated, and initial testing was undertaken using a variety of choke sizes. During this testing, strong gas and condensate flows were recorded, and, accordingly, the well was hooked-up to the gas processing facilities to allow longer-term production testing to be conducted to optimise the operating parameters of the well. Currently, the well is producing at a stabilised flow rate of approximately 5.0 MMscf/d of gas and 193 bbl/d of condensate (1,070 boepd in aggregate).

 

Sergii Glazunov, Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are delighted with the results of this new development well, which was drilled safely and successfully. The flow rates demonstrated are excellent and a significant boost to our overall production volumes."

 

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
