British Columbia: Upper Montney gas gauged at Nig

Yoho Resources Corp. and Progress Energy Resources Corp., both of Calgary, have gauged gas-condensate in Devonian Upper Montney tight sands at horizontal wells at Nig northwest of Dawson Creek, British Columbia.

The d-97-H/94-H-4 well, in the northern part of Yoho’s land block 8 miles north of the first Yoho-operated well at Nig, flowed up tubing from the horizontal section on clean-up at a rate of 5.6 MMcfd with 700 psig on a 38/64-in. choke with an average 56 b/d of free condensate after a seven-stage frac using a plug and perf completion.

Yoho estimates liquids production to be in excess of 30 bbl/MMcf, 40-50% condensate.

The company’s first Yoho horizontal well at Nig, a-41-A/94-H-4, was placed on production in November 2011 through third party facilities at initial rates of 5 MMcfd. The d-97-H/94-H-4 well is expected to be on production early in 2012.

Yoho and Progress are drilling a third horizontal well targeting the Upper Montney. The area is also prospective for Lower Montney, which is expected to be tested in early 2012 with the drilling of a fourth well.

Yoho has accumulated 40,751 gross (20,375 net) acres of land at Nig. Yoho anticipates it will apply to license a 25 MMcfd compressor station at Nig, construction of which will depend on upcoming drilling results.
