Flow restarted from deep Louisiana well

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Aug. 9 -- Sonoran Energy Inc., Phoenix, has restarted production from a deep, high-pressure, high-temperature well in the second phase of a Central Louisiana workover program.

The Strickland 17 well, in which Sonoran holds a 100% interest, is producing 275 boe/d through an 8/64-in. choke at a stable flowing tubing pressure of 6,100 psi. The well is 15,000 ft deep with pressure as high as 15,000 psi and a temperature of about 300º F. The workover included removal of 800 ft of stuck pipe and clean-up of the wellbore.

Workover of the second well in the program's second phase, which covers Vernon and Beauregard parishes, will require removal of more than 1,000 ft of stuck pipe.

Earlier, the company established production of more than 100 boe/d from three of four wells in the program's first phase (OGJ, Apr. 10, 2006, Newsletter).
