Sundance Energy Corp., Calgary, said it has begun completion-evaluation operations at its Ochapowace 6-5-18-3w2m test well in Southeast Saskatchewan.
The formations being completed for production testing are the Bakken, Souris Valley-Lodgepole, Watrous, and Second White Specks. The Bakken formation is perforated and is waiting to be fraced and completed. Conventional completions will then be conducted on the Souris River-Lodgepole and the Watrous. Finally the Second White Specks will be perforated, fraced, and completed.
Sundance has drilled the Lestock 5-3-27- 15w2m test well on its Muskowekwan First Nations permit and cased it to 840 m total depth. Logs and cores indicate potential oil and gas pay zones in the Second White Specks, Souris Valley-Lodgepole, and the Nisku-Birdbear formations. Completion is expected to begin as soon as services are available.
Sundance holds 100% interest in 70,000 acres in the two areas of Southeast Saskatchewan.
