Talisman, East Resources score in New York

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Aug. 4 -- Talisman Energy Inc., Calgary, said its Fortuna Energy Inc. unit is evaluating further drilling near two strong gas completions in western New York.

Fortuna's 99.6% owned Stoscheck-1 went on line at 22 MMcfd of gas with 2,600 psi flowing pressure. It was drilled vertically and then steered horizontally across a newly identified graben structure in the Ordovician Upper Black River formation. The pressure indicates that the well penetrated a new pool, the company said.

Fortuna has a 49.25% working interest in the Hartman BJ-1 well on which East Resources Inc., Wexford, Pa., was the drilling operator. It went on line at 12 MMcfd of gas at 1,950 psi flowing pressure in what is interpreted to be a new pool, Fortuna said.

Fortuna's 2006 program calls for drilling or participating in 17 horizontal Trenton-Black River wells and five vertical wells and $10 million in outlays including two compressor stations. Its current production is 110 MMcfd of gas.
