Poland: Eastern Baltic basin shale gas well spuds

By OGJ editors

A unit of Talisman Energy Inc. has spud the Rogity-1 well on the Braniewo S concession in the Baltic basin in Poland.

The well targets unconventional shale gas in formations of Lower Silurian, Ordovician, and Upper Cambrian age. It is the second in a three-well program in the basin. One more well is to be drilled on the Szczawno concession in early 2012.

Rogity-1 will be the easternmost penetration of the Paleozoic section in the Baltic basin, said participant San Leon Energy PLC. This area is believed to be less thermally mature and is considered to carry more risk than the western part of the basin, but San Leon believes it has the potential for a more liquids-rich production.
