HOUSTON, Mar. 8 -- Pemex Exploracion & Production has tested dry gas at the rate of 3 MMcfd from its first exploratory well in the Eagle Ford shale.
The Emergente well, in northern Coahuila state, has 17 frac stages in a 4,500-ft lateral at 2,500 m.
Pemex is still evaluating the unconventional gas well, said Pemex E&P Director General Carlos A. Morales Gil. He said the company believes the formation extends to the south and that it should include liquids to the west.
The Emergente well is about 5 km west of a gas conditioning station in the Burgos basin, Morales Gil said.
