Regal Petroleum reported on May 23, 2017, that the company is to hook up a Ukrainian well for production testing.
The exploration and production group is to trial its MEX-109 well located at its Mekhediviska-Golotvshinska gas and condensate field.
The MEX-109 well was spudded in July 2016 and drilled to a depth of 4,873 metres.
The well had an original target depth of 5,250 metres but, due to some mechanical issues, further drilling activities were curtailed once the primary reservoir targets were accessible.
One interval, at a drilled depth of 4,802 – 4,808 metres, within the B-20 Visean reservoirs (B-sands) was perforated.
Short-term initial flow testing came through at a rate of approximately 85,000 m3/d of gas and 40 m3/d of condensate (778 boepd in aggregate).
It is now intended to hook up the well to the gas processing facility and then undertake production testing.
