HOUSTON, June 21
– Poland’s first horizontal shale gas well has been drilled, logged, cased and awaits extensive stimulation in the third quarter of 2011, said 3Legs Resources PLC.

The company drilled and cased the Lebien LE-2H well from the same location as its Lebien LE-1 vertical well. Lebien LE-2H went to 4,080 m measured total depth including a 1,000-m horizontal section placed in a 5-m target zone in organic-rich Lower Paleozoic shales. The well encountered high gas saturations throughout the horizontal section, 3Legs said.

Well data support the company’s existing regional geological interpretation.

The rig will move to drill the company’s Warblino LE-2H horizontal well on its Damnica license, scheduled to spud in the third quarter.
