Cequence Energy Ltd., Calgary, has gauged wet gas at its first Dunvegan horizontal gas well in the Simonette-Resthaven area southeast of Grande Prairie, Alta.
The Cequence-operated 10-02-061-02w6 well was drilled to 4,443 m measured total depth including 1,791 m of horizontal section in Dunvegan in which 16 forty-tonne fracs were successfully placed using a frac port system.
The well flowed on clean-up for 53 hr at a final rate of 16.4 MMcfd plus liquids with 2,380 psi flowing casing pressure. It is producing at a facilities-restricted 8.0 MMcfd at 2,770 psi FCP. The 10-02 well is the second of three farm-in commitment wells, and Cequence will retain a 65% working interest in nine sections of prospective land at Resthaven.
Cequence management believes the test validates as many as 12 (7.8 net) locations for liquids-rich gas in the Dunvegan. Completed well costs, estimated at $8.5 million for the 10-02 well, are expected to decrease as the pool is developed.
Cequence noted that the Dunvegan success adds to the already extensive Montney, Wilrich, and Falher resource opportunities identified on its 220-section Simonette land base.
