1 US

Two Campbell County, Wyo., Parkman wells were completed by EOG Resources Inc. The wells were drilled from a Crossbow Field pad in Section 5-42n-72w. The #0508-01H Congo was drilled to 16,820 ft (true vertical depth of 7,446 ft). It produced 1,017 of 58°API oil, 1.459 MMcf of gas and 1,095 bbl of water per day from perforations at 7,854 ft to 16,754 ft after 22-stage fracturing. The offsetting #0508-02H Congo was drilled to 17,356 ft (7,467 ft true vertical). It flowed 1,210 bbl of 57°API condensate, 1.079 MMcf of gas and 987 bbl of water daily after 24-stage fracturing. Production is from perforations at 7,619 ft to 17,292 ft.

2 US

A Harrison County, Ohio, Utica Shale completion was announced by EAP Ohio LLC. The #6H Wallace K 4-11-6 is in Section 4-11n-6w. It was tested flowing at a 24-hour rate of 1,457 bbl of oil, 14.749 MMcf of gas and 343 bbl of water. The Forks South Field well was drilled to 26,744 (true vertical depth of 8,357 ft). Production is from perforations between 8,282 ft and 26,594 ft. 

3 Argentina

President Energy reported test results from exploration well #1-xEVN near Estancia Vieja Field in northern Rio Negro Province, Argentina. Two pay intervals in the previously untested Estancia Vieja North structure were confirmed by well logging, with an unreported amount of 36°API oil and gas flowing to the surface. The preliminary testing indicated that IP levels can be expected in line with P50 predrill expectations of more than 200 bbl/d of oil plus associated gas from this lower interval. The well is near the main Estancia Vieja pipelines and facilities. Additional exploratory drilling and testing are planned. 

4 Montenegro

Eni has scheduled two shallow-water exploration wells in the Montenegro sector of the Adriatic Sea. The ventures will be the first in the four-block concession (Blocks 4118-4; 4118-5; 4118-9 and 4110-10). The blocks encompass an area of 1,228 sq km and were acquired by Eni and partner Novatek in 2016 as jointly operated concessions (50% interest each). The drill sites were selected from geophysical data acquired in 2018.
