Egdon Resources said test operations have now been completed on the Wingfield Flags reservoir at the Wressle-1 oil discovery in England. The reservoir is the second of three potentially hydrocarbon bearing zones identified in the well. Oil production rates equivalent of up to 182 barrels of oil per day of good quality 39-40 API oil were achieved on free flow, along with up to 456 thousand cubic feet of gas per day.
Egdon Resources will undertake a longer term production test following positive free-flow results from Wressle-1. The company said ongoing well test operations in licence PEDL 180 have now been completed in the Ashover Grit, the first of three potentially hydrocarbon bearing zones identified in the well. An interval of 9.5metres was perforated and following an initial ‘clean-up’ flow, oil production of 80 barrels of oil per day were achieved during a 16 hour main flow period along with 47,000 cubic feet of gas per day.
