Green Dragon Gas Ltd. said it averaged coalbed methane production of 4.4 MMcfd in the 2011 fourth quarter from the Shizhuang South block in China.
The company said it drilled 67 wells in 2011, of which 53 were vertical wells, compared with 29 in 2010. Most drilling was on Shizhuang South, but the 2011 drilling included 5 wells on Guizhou, 4 wells on Qinyuan, 2 each on Fencheng and Panxie East, and 1 on the Shizhuang North. These five are exploration blocks.
The blocks are in Shanxi, Anhui, and Jiangxi provinces.
The company is connecting the pipeline spur that will link the Huabei gas gathering station to China's main West-East trunk pipeline, which is to enable the sale of gas to PetroChina Huabei to start in the second quarter of 2012. It did not list its 2012 drilling plans.
