HOUSTON, Nov. 6
– Royale Energy Inc., San Diego, said its Goddard 7-1 apparent new field discovery in the Sacramento basin stabilized at 2.45 MMcfd of gas on a restricted choke from an undisclosed formation.

The well, 1 mile north of Lonestar field in Colusa County and with much higher pressure than those found in the field, is capable of sharply higher rates and is to go on production at 2.5 MMcfd, the company said (OGJ Online, Oct. 15, 2009).

Royale Energy’s Wylie-1, the first follow-up well to the discovery, spud on Oct. 28 and will test a similar 3D seismic amplitude anomaly nearby. Royale Energy will drill more follow-up wells by the end of 2009.
