Following its success in this year’s first half, Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd. will drill and complete four additional Muskeg wells this summer (OGJ Online, Nov. 3, 2016). The operator also is evaluating a second prospective formation in its multizone light-oil Marlowe prospect.

The company has brought five Muskeg wells on production this year. According to the company, three of these have produced their load fluid. Well 00/16-35 produced 741 boe/d, of which oil accounted for 94%. Well 00/13-01 produced 746 boe/d and 02/13-01 produced 453 boe/d. Oil accounted for 70% and 77% of produced fluids during testing, respectively.

The remaining two wells 00/5-12 and 00/11-12 have tested more than 200 b/d of oil with limited amounts of gas. Both wells are continuing to clean out, the company said. Strategic’s horizontal Muskeg wells are more oil-weighted compared with previous Muskeg wells, and each has been outfitted with downhole equipment to handle associated gas production and improve pump jack efficiency over the life of the well, the company said.
