– ProspEx Resources Ltd., Calgary, gauged a sharply higher gas-condensate flow rate at its second horizontal multifrac well in the East Kakwa area of the Alberta Deep Basin.

The second well, at 15-19-64-4w6m, produced up casing at a final rate of 24.4 MMcfd of gas on a 38-hr test at 1,570 psi flowing wellhead pressure. It flowed up tubing at the rate of 16 MMcfd at 1,690 psi.

The first well, at 2-33-63-4w6m, made 10.9 MMcfd at 2,380 psi on a clean-up test and 6.6 MMcfd at 2,300 psi on extended test last September. On production since early November, it averaged a facility-restricted 7.8 MMcfd net to ProspEx’s 60% working interest including associated liquids.

ProspEx expects to finish drilling a third horizontal well by late January 2010. The 15-19 and 2-33 wells are 8 km apart, and the third horizontal well will extend the trend 5 km farther north.

ProspEx didn’t identify the formation, but the area produces from five Cretaceous zones including Falher channels at 2,400-2,600 m true vertical depth.
