EnerJex begins production from J sand well in Adena field

EnerJex Resources Inc., San Antonio, has started natural gas production from a well in the J sand formation of Adena field, Colorado’s third-largest oil field. The well is flowing at a rate of 0.5 MMcfd of liquids-rich natural gas, the company reported.

EnerJex owns most of Adena field after a merger last year with Black Raven Energy Inc. (OGJ Online, July 29, 2013). The company plans to begin production from two additional wells before April.

About 130 wells in the field are shut in or temporarily abandoned. EnerJex has identified 75 wells to be reactivated in the J sand formation or recompleted in the D sand formation. Harsh operating conditions and cold weather have slowed operations over the past month, the company said.
