Poland: Test set at Carpathian fold belt wildcat

By OGJ editors

A group led by Polish Oil & Gas Co. suspended drilling at 4,219 m at the Niebieszczany-1 exploratory well on the Bieszczady block in the Polish Carpathian fold belt.

Spud in mid-October 2010 as the first of a three-well program, it was projected to 4,800 m and did not reach its primary targets. Drilling was halted due to high pressure in the reservoir. The well cut 60 m of formation that yielded oil and gas-condensate on short tests and is to be placed on flow test for as long as 14 days.

Another well to be drilled in the first half of 2012 will be designed for high pressure to enable the group to reach the primary oil targets and potentially appraise the 60-m test zone.

PGNiG is block operator with 51% interest, Aurelian Oil & Gas PLC 25%, and EuroGas Inc., New York, 24%.
