HOUSTON, Sept. 28
-- Lane Energy Poland Sp.z o.o., Warsaw, plans to stimulate two vertical wells to test shales in Paleozoic formations in the Baltic basin in north-central Poland.

The company has drilled Lebien LE1 and cored the target shales and is drilling Legowo LE1. The unconventional gas program targets shales as deep as 3,500 m.

The drillsites, 50 km east and 20 km south, respectively, of Gdansk, are within 15 km of the Polish gas pipeline network.

A limited number of frac stages is planned at each well, said Kamlesh Parmar, Lane Energy Poland country manager. The shales are of Silurian and Ordovician age.

Lane Energy Poland employed a mix of locally provided and Schlumberger-managed services at the wells.
