HOUSTON, Sept. 30
-- Mesa Energy Holdings Inc., Dallas, reported promising if modest flow test results from two vertical New York Marcellus shale wells on which limited frac stimulations were performed earlier this year.

Reisdorf Unit-1, in northern Java field, Wyoming County, had an estimated CAOF of 220 Mcfd of gas from Marcellus at 1,380 ft. Shut-in pressure exceeded 900 psi, well above engineering estimates for this depth. The recompletion had a limited, highly focused frac job due to regulatory limitations.

Well data also indicate at least two viable shale zones uphole from the Marcellus as well as good potential in the underlying Onondaga limestone.

Ludwig-1, in southern Java field, exhibited higher initial pressures and flowback rates than expected, but pipeline curtailments made it difficult to complete frac water flowback and not enough data are available to accurately quantify the gas flow. Mesa Energy perforated and fraced 36 ft at 1,892-1,994 ft.

The company is evaluating alternate pipeline sales outlets.
