The Miloslaw-4k well in Poland flowed gas with no observable water, FX Energy said in a news release about the completion of drilling, coring, logging and testing of the well.
Gas flowed at a rate of 4.32 MMcf/d on a 16/64-in. choke from a 41.3 meter interval in the Rotliegend sandstone. True vertical depth of the producing zone is from 3,632.9 m to 3,674.2 m, the longest producing interval of any of the company’s wells in Poland, FX Energy said in the release. The well is being completed and is expected to begin producing in 2016-2017.
The well tested a Rotliegend sandstone target located in the Fences license about 15 km northwest of the producing wells at Lisewo-1 and 2. The Miloslaw prospect is one of the largest conventional prospects FX Energy has drilled in Poland, the company said. The Polish Oil and Gas Co. is the operator and owns 51% of the working interest, while FX Energy owns 49%.
