Poland: PGNiG starts Winna Gora gas production facility

Polish Oil & Gas Co. has started up the Winna Gora gas production facility at the rate of 1.5 MMcfd on the 850,000-acre Fences concession in Poland’s Permian basin, said FX Energy Inc., Salt Lake City, which has a 49% interest in the concession.

PGNiG is drilling the Mieczewo-1K exploratory well below 2,000 m. The well is a planned test of a Rotliegend structure at a projected 3,360 m on the western part of the Fences concession.

Meanwhile, FX Energy has drilled the Tuchola-3K well to the Zechstein formation at 2,583 m just above the projected Ca2/Main dolomite target reservoir. The company will run logs and set casing before coring into the Main dolomite. There it will drillstem test the top 10-15 m if the Main dolomite has gas shows and apparent porosity.

The Tuchola-3K well is planned to test the Main dolomite target and an independent Devonian oil target at 3,180-3,820 m. The Tuchola-3K well is on one of four blocks that comprise FX Energy’s 100% owned, 880,000-acre Edge concession in northern Poland.
