Fremont Petroleum Corporation Ltd (ASX: FPL) (“Fremont” or “the Company”) is very pleased to report that the J.W.Powell #23-25 well is starting to produce strong oil and gas volumes from the Niobrara Formation.
Crude oil is now flowing into the temporary tanks on location which generates revenue immediately, and the well is producing a 15-foot gas flare (see figure 1) in these very early stages.
Fremont Petroleum Corporation Ltd (ASX: FPL) (“Fremont” or “the Company”) advises that flow back operations are progressing on the J.W.Powell #23-25 well.
The flow-back program is designed to recover ~30% of the hydraulic stimulation fluids that were injected into the Niobrara Formation as a part of the fracking process. Typically at the 30% mark, a productive reservoir will start to produce oil and gas, and the water cut diminishes over time.
