HOUSTON, Feb. 4
– Frontera Resources Corp., Houston, drilled new wells in Mirzaani and Mtsare Khevi fields in the shallow fields production unit on 5,060 sq km Block 12 in eastern Georgia.

Mirzanni-1 and 5, TD 1,500 m and 1,125 m, respectively, in undeveloped and underdeveloped parts of the field, had oil and gas shows in 120-146 m of net sandstones with higher than expected porosity and permeability.

The wells indicate that zones 12 and 13 will be the primary targets for forward development and zones 14-18 in the Lower Pliocene Shiraki formation will be a bonus if present. Tests are pending.

Four new wells in Mtsare Khevi bring to 18 the number of development wells drilled since August 2008. The wells tap oil in low-recovery zones I and II and gas in Zone III, all from Upper Pliocene Akchagil reservoirs at 200-350 m.

The shallow fields unit is producing 200 b/d of oil, and a 12 km pipeline with capacity for 3.5 MMcfd of gas is expected to be operating by Mar. 31.
