Ascent Resources provides operational update for Petišovci gas field

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

The Board of Ascent Resources plc, the European focused oil and gas exploration and production company, has provided an update on progress with its Petišovci project in Slovenia.

Infrastructure for delivering gas to INA

The completion of the necessary infrastructure is progressing well. The line from the CPP to the export line has passed the technical inspection and is ready for use.

Refurbishment of the separation equipment at the CPP has progressed as planned. The refurbished separator has been installed and the remaining connections are being made.

The flowline from Pg-11A to the CPP has been installed, tested and is ready to connect to the well once downhole operations have completed.

Our customer, INA, is due to complete the re-certification of its pipeline on the Croatian side of the border in time to receive Petišovci gas, we have been advised to expect this before the end of July 2017.

Well Pg-11A

Work to bring Pg-11A into production continues.

As previously announced we engaged a coiled tubing unit to assist with the part of the final downhole portion of the recompletion. This part of the operation has been completed and the coiled tubing equipment has now left the site.

Additional work is required to prepare the well for production, which is expected to take approximately two weeks.

Once the work-over is complete we will immediately connect the well to the infrastructure, enabling gas to be produced for sale.

The Company looks forward to providing an update once these works are completed.

Colin Hutchinson, CEO, commented:

“We have made significant progress over the last three weeks in getting the infrastructure ready and look forward to commencing the supply of gas to INA shortly.”
