– Enhanced Oil Resources Inc., Houston, plans to test three appraisal wells it has drilled in St. Johns helium and carbon dioxide field in Apache County, Ariz.

Extension of the due date for completion of the final two remaining obligation wells required by the St. Johns Unit Agreement won preliminary approval.

The three wells were drilled to the base of the Amos Wash interval, encountered excellent reservoir characteristics, and flowed carbon dioxide while drilling, the company said.

The two other wells may target Amos Wash or Granite Wash in the high-helium northern part of the field or may be used in conjunction with the Greenfire Energy joint venture to evaluate helium and carbon dioxide potential in deeper granitic basement at depths not previously drilled in the area.
