France: Aquitaine basin gas reentries starting

By OGJ editors

Gallic Energy Ltd., Calgary, began operations at the first of two wells it will reenter seeking gas-condensate on the 127,000 net acre Ger permit east of Lacq and Meillon gas fields in the Aquitaine basin of France.

The company targets gas in three conventional formations to 3,000 m measured depth, including the 200-m thick Cretaceous flysch carbonate that had gas shows that were never tested, at the Ossun-2 well. Total SA predecessor Soc. National des Petroles d’Aquitaine drilled the well in the late 1960s.

Gallic is preparing a second drill site, Azereix-1, for reentry next. Gallic is 100% owner and operator of both wells.
