New Brunswick Frederick Brook well is discovery

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 15
-- Corridor Resources Inc., Halifax, NS, pronounced its Green Road well in New Brunswick, Canada, as a new field discovery after it tested gas from two shaly intervals.

The Green Road G-41 well, 4 km north of Elgin, NB, stabilized at 430 Mscfd of gas at 147 psi final flowing wellhead pressure after an 83-hr flow period from a black shale at 2,000-2,050 m.

Final stabilized rate from a silty, sandy shale interval at 1,850-1,900 m was 3 MMscfd at a final flowing wellhead pressure of 699 psi. That zone produced 42.4 MMscf of gas in 184-hr at a peak rate of 11.7 MMscfd.

Both zones had been fractured with propane at the vertical well (OGJ Online, Nov. 25, 2009).

The Green Road well has been shut in as a future producer, awaiting further exploration and development in the area and a potential pipeline connection to Corridor’s McCully gas plant located 20 km west.

Apache Canada Ltd. signed a farmout and option agreement with Corridor Resources to pursue gas in Frederick Brook shale in southern New Brunswick (OGJ Online, Dec. 8, 2009).
