At its Wizard Lake Rex well, the company advises flow back operations to continue at a total fluid rate of up to 1500 bbls/day with approximately 50% of the load fluid recovered to date. As the load fluid is drawn down the oil cut continues to increase. A high-volume, submersible pump is being used to assist with the recovery of frac fluids, as is the practice by other operators in the area and to optimize the oil recovery rate.
At rates above expectations to date is the performance of the well, and the company is looking forward to seeing a stabilized, substantive, oil production outcome as they clean the well up in the next few weeks.
Accompanied by excellent oil shows and elevated gas readings with predominately good quality reservoir, from the casing shoe the well intersected a continuous reservoir section. In what could be a multi-well program analogous to the offsetting Leduc area Rex, the Rex target at Wizard Lake is the first horizontal well to be drilled. The target zone in the PLJV lands has similar sponginess but is thicker than at the Leduc area Rex prospect has the potential for 12-14 follow up development wells.
