Texas: Schleicher McKavitt oil production extended

Telesis Operating Co. Inc., Fort Worth, has extended Upper Pennsylvanian McKavitt (Canyon) sandstone oil production in Camar field in Schleicher County, Tex., with completion of the Thornburg 27-6 well.

The well is the first of a multiwall program that targets multiple conventional Permian basin reservoirs, said Junex USA LLC, Quebec City, Que., which will earn a 25% leasehold working interest by paying its 25% share of acreage acquisition costs and 33% of the first two wells to casing point.

The well went to 4,507 ft and is averaging 32 b/d of oil. The well has produced as much as 71 b/d, and cumulative recovery on production tests is 1,000 bbl of oil, Junex said.

The well is Junex’s first participation in the US, where the company and its partners have acquired 2,219 gross acres. Telesis, an operator since 1980, owns and operates 165 oil and gas wells in West Texas.

Junex said, “Notwithstanding the Quebec government-ordained slow-down of operations on our prospective Utica shale assets, Quebec remains an important focus for our company such as is clearly shown by this summer’s activities. These activities included the drilling of our successful Junex Galt-4 well on the Gaspe Peninsula and the completion of a 224 line-km 2D seismic survey on our prospective Anticosti Island Macasty shale oil assets.”
