Sonde Resources Corp. (TSX:SOQ,AMEX:SOQ) announced the results of a five-day production test at its first Montney exploration well, located in the Ante Creek North region, commenting that an extended production test will be completed as soon as the equipment required is available.
As quoted in the press release:
The well was drilled and cased to a measured depth of 3,350 meters, and stimulated using a ball-drop system with 8 stages of gelled propane. Unusually high permeability was encountered, and near the end of the flowback period, after recovering approximately 54% of load propane, the well flowed at rates averaging 1,200 bbl fluid plus 1.8 MMcf total gas per day, with formation hydrocarbon rates of 120 bbl of 41.6 API gravity oil plus 1.3 MMcf gas (334 boe / day). Total cost to drill, case, stimulate and test the well was approximately $4.3 MM.
