– Consulting engineers attribute possible marketable reserves of 2.16 bcf of gas and 2,900 bbl of natural gas liquids in Hiram Brook sands to the E-08 (Feenan-2) well in New Brunswick, said operator PetroWorth Resources Inc., Toronto.

The well is on the Rosevale block east of McCully gas field and south of Moncton.

The E-08 well was drilled in November-December 2007 and underwent four fracture stimulations in the Hiram Brook sands in June 2008. At the end of a 130-hr commingled production test, the well flowed 900 Mcfd of gas and 14.4 b/d of condensate.

The engineering report also states that PetroWorth’s A-08 well just east of the E-08 well has prospective sands in Hiram Brook that are yet to be evaluated.

The report said the Frederick Brook shale member of the Albert formation that underlies Hiram Brook is very thick at Rosevale and extends over the field. The organic rich Frederick Brook shales have been identified as the main source rock for the gas produced from the Hiram Brook.
