France: Work planned on Aquitaine permits

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 12
– Gallic Energy Ltd., Calgary, is evaluating data on the 100% owned Ger and Ledeuix exploration permits near Lacq and Meillon gas fields in France’s Aquitaine basin.

Consulting engineers attributed a prospective resource of 615 bcf of conventional gas to the 127,000-acre Ger permit, which the company believes has potential in conventional and unconventional formations.

Gallic Energy plans a work program to reactivate wells on the Ger permit in 2011, including Ger-101, which produced 4 bcf from Eocene. The company has mapped a 34,000-acre fairway on which Eocene averages 1,400 m thick and is reviewing unconventional gas potential.

The Ledeuix-1 and Saucede-1 wells on the 193,000-acre Ledeuix permit have produced gas from Cretaceous and Jurassic intervals.
