Poland: San Leon spuds Carboniferous strat test

By OGJ editors

San Leon Energy PLC has spudded the Siciny-2 stratigraphic test on the company’s 100% owned Gora concession 70 km southeast of Zielona Gora, Poland.

The Southwest Carboniferous basin stratigraphic test is to go to 3,500 m and take 400 m of core for an advanced geological and geophysical evaluation initiative. No tests are planned.

The well is designed to test the unconventional gas potential of Carboniferous sediments, believed to be the source rock for the gas production in the overlying Permian Rotligendes and Zechstein formations in Poland.

Based on well results San Leon will plan further evaluation and drilling in 2012.
