Real Energy concludes recompletion of Tamarama-1 well

Published by

  • Re-completion operations successfully concluded.
  • Well currently free flowing approx. 300 bbls of frack fluid per day through 3/8 in. choke with increasing gas influx.
  • Successfully removed blockage and installed production tubing string.
  • Flow testing with measurement of gas rates to commence following completion of flow back of frack fluids.
  • Real Energy well placed to unlock significant value from its Cooper Basin acreage – taking advantage of growing demand for gas in the Eastern States of Australia.
  • Programme designed to test Toolache & Patchawarra formations below 2300 m.

Cooper Basin focused oil & gas exploration company, Real Energy Corporation Limited, has announced that it has successfully concluded the re-completion operations at Tamarama-1 well.

The latest intervention involved removal of the existing tubing, and re-entering the lower diversion assemblies with a small drill to mechanically remove the blockage in the tubing string. The well has now completed with a production tubing string and the post-frack flow back operation has resumed.

The well is currently free flowing back the frack fluids at an estimated fluid rate of approximately 300 bpd through a 3/8 in. choke with reported increasing gas influx. It is anticipated that it will take several days to recover a significant volume of frack fluids injected into the reservoirs during the 5-stage fracture stimulation.

The flow test with measurement of gas rates will immediately commence at the conclusion of the flow back period. The company will report the flow test results to the market as soon as they become available.
