IGas Energy, a domestic gas producer and a leading developer of unconventional gas resources in the UK, has increased average gas production at its Doe Green site near Warrington in Cheshire by around 40% percent.
This increase has been achieved following the implementation of a range of measures designed to optimize the de-watering process at the site's DG2 well. The contributing laterals (understood to be over 1,000 feet in length) have now been producing at the increased rate of around 60,000 standard cubic feet (scf) per day of high quality CBM for over six weeks.
IGas has been steadily producing gas and generating electricity for over a year from Doe Green and remains on track to establish the UK's first CBM full production site in 2011. The Company could potentially increase its operations at Doe Green, and as a consequence has applied for planning permission for two more wells on the site.
IGas is the largest independent CBM producer in the UK. Based on the Contingent resource estimates prepared by D&M, the Company's independent reserve assessors, the Company has enough gas to supply electricity to over 7 per cent of the UK's household's for 15 years.
