HOUSTON, Oct. 17 -- Cheyenne Energy Inc., Calgary, reported a pumping 15 b/d exploratory oil completion at Hawk in northwestern Alberta and said there is no other production from Devonian Gilwood within 50 km.
Cheyenne reentered the 3-30-97-19w5m wellbore drilled at the end of 2005, ran a frac job, and perforated more Gilwood sand, and installed a pumping unit. Logs indicated a total of 10 m of oil-bearing Gilwood sand. The well, 30 miles southeast of Keg River, Alta., is producing 56° gravity oil.
The company believes that lost drilling fluid is hampering the oil production rate because Gilwood wells typically produce at much higher rates.
Cheyenne has 80-95% working interests in 23 sections on a geologically defined structural high that trends northeast and southwest from the drillsite.
