London-listed 88 Energy said today that it completed the first phase of its “stimulation” operations on its Alaskan project on the weekend.
It said the second stage would take place over the next 12 hours.
Flowback is then planned from the upper zone until a representative sample can be obtained.
The choke will then be gradually opened up to assess the maximum potential flow rate from both zones over the coming weeks.
Sample analysis will take place in a lab over the next four to six weeks.
