International Frontier Resources Corporation (IFR) joint venture Tonalli Energia, in partnership with Mexican petrochemical leader Grupo IDESA, announced that service equipment is being mobilised for stimulation and production testing after successfully receiving a perforation permit for the TEC-10 well.
Tonalli will test up to three prospective zones in the TEC-10 well as part of the completion program. The completion and testing operation is expected to last 14 to 21 days dependent upon weather and service execution.
Completion operations will provide valuable information about reservoir parameters and well deliverability that will be incorporated into the long-term development plan for the Tecolutla block.
As announced on May 16, 2018, Tonalli reached a significant milestone by achieving production at Tecolutla with a successful workover of its previously drilled TEC-2 legacy well. TEC-2 recovered an average of 125 bopd. Tonalli is nearing fulfillment of the minimum work commitment requirement for Tecolutla.
Through its joint venture, IFR was one of the first foreign companies to participate in Mexico’s historic reform of the oil and gas sector. The Tecolutla block was awarded to Tonalli as part of the first round and third call of Mexico's oil and natural gas ‘mature fields’ bid round (Round 1.3), the first in almost 80 years.
