– The Almond Grove 4-13 well at Southeast Lost Hills in California’s San Joaquin basin attempted to blow out and had to be controlled with 14 ppg mud, and drill pipe became stuck.

Solimar Energy Ltd., Melbourne, operator with 100% working interest, had drilled the well to 3,092 ft seeking gas in reservoirs of Pliocene age.

The well is part of a project that initially targets 40 bcf of recoverable gas with an upside exceeding 100 bcf on more than 5,000 acres.

The well is more than 1 km from Solimar’s gas handling facilities and if
successful will be tied in. Solimar has 100% interest in the Southeast Lost Hills gas project.
