Maha Energy AB (publ) ("Maha" or the "Company") Announces Update on GTE-3 Workover in the Tie Field.
The Company is pleased to announce the dual recompletion of two zones in the GTE-3 well is now complete by use of a long production string for the Sergi formation (the "long string") and a short production string for the Agua Grande ("AG" or the "short string").
Sergi - "Long String"
The Sergi formation has, on its own, initially tested at 960 BOPD, 218 BWPD and 261 MSCFPD of gas with the assistance of the newly acquired jet pump and will now be placed on production. The Sergi long string will continue to be produced until the AG short string is ready to be tested and put on stream (see below).
Agua Grande- "Short String"
Additional purpose built equipment is being brought to the Tie field to test and place the Agua Grande short string on stream. Once the Agua Grande is tested and ready for production, the surface pumping equipment will be properly calibrated and both zones will then be produced simultaneously.
Jonas Lindvall, managing director of Maha Energy AB said: "This is a good example of the Maha Energy business model: "applying state of the art technology to under exploited resources to increase production". Here, a very custom-tailored solution - a single hydraulic triplex jet pump driving a dual completion in a single well - propelled a previously dead-well to become an important producer. The initial results of the long string exceed our expectations."
FNCA Sweden AB is the Company's Certified Adviser.
