Northern Minerals & Exploration Ltd has announced that in August, shortly after commencing production on the Coleman County lease, the production of oil was suspended as it was evident additional repairs were required to the tank battery. This work has been completed and was successful in making repairs. The successful completion of this work allows for steady production of oil and gas from the wells on the lease.
Subsequent to completing repairs on the tank battery, 12 October 2015, Northern re-started production of oil and gas from one of the three wells (the Concho Richey #1) on the lease. Over the course of five days from 12 October to 16 October, this well produced 224 bbls of oil and averaged 100 million ft3/d of gas.
The Concho Richey #1 is a direct offset to a well on an adjoining lease that has produced more than 65 000 bbls and 160 million ft3 of gas and is still producing oil and gas after 30 years.
With oil and gas production once again underway, Northern is continuing to make further sales of oil and gas from the Coleman County lease. Once the Concho Richey #1 oil and gas production rate stabilises, the other two wells, which are set for production on the lease, will be brought into production. This lease offers further upside potential with spacing allowable for the drilling of additional oil and gas wells.
With the establishment of production and cash flow from operations on the Coleman County, Texas lease, the Company looks forward to commencing operations on its other central Texas Oil and Gas projects.
Northern in keeping in line with its corporate strategy, continues to evaluate additional oil and gas projects for participation in and/or acquisition of, that offer low risk with significant upside potential, to maximise the Company’s success in building shareholder value from oil and gas revenues.
