Petrolia said it has obtained a completion permit which will allow it to carry out the cleaning of the well at Haldimand 4 in Quebec and start a long-term production test.
The company have already removed the pump installed last year in order to prepare the well for the cleaning operations.
A completion program is needed as a result of the analysis of the production data which revealed a certain portion of the high density drilling fluids remain in the well.
The cleaning operation will be carried out by inserting coil tubing right to the bottom of the 2000metre horizontal drain to inject nitrogen which will force the remaining fluids down the horizontal drain and out of the well.
Petrolia’s technical team is currently preparing the implementation of the completion program which should allow it to begin the long-term production test.
