Poland: Rotliegendes gas found at Poznan East

By OGJ editors

Aurelian Oil & Gas PLC has discovered a preliminary 10-20 bcf of gas in place in Permian Rotliegendes sandstones at the Krzesinki-1 exploratory well on Poznan East Block 207 in Poland.

The well encountered a 65-m gas column, and 175 m of core has been recovered. The extensive quantity of core recovered has so far yielded measured ambient porosities of 5% to 16% and ambient permeability of 0.04 md to 40.0 md in the gas column. The well is to be tested by the end of 2011.

Krzesinki-1 is on the same license as Aurelian’s Siekierki tight gas field project and 8 km west of the Trzek-3 multifrac horizontal well on pressure buildup following the recent long-term flow test. Krzesinki will be included in Siekierki development planning.

The Siekierki project is located on the Poznan licenses that are 100% held by Energia Zachod Sp. z.o.o., a company owned 90% by Aurelian and 10% by Avobone NV.
