Blackbird Energy of Alberta Canada announced two ‘significant’ discoveries at Elmworth
Blackbird Energy (ticker: BBI) based in Calgary, Alberta, announced this week that its first two operated horizontal Montney wells on Blackbird’s 69 section land block at Elmworth, Alberta, Canada, have been successfully completed and tested. The wells separately targeted the Middle Montney and Upper Montney intervals. The company is the operator and has a 100% working interest in both wells and its lands at Elmworth.
The 06-26 well was drilled to a total measured depth of 4,734 meters (15,532 feet), including a horizontal lateral of 2,052 meters (6,732 feet). The well was stimulated with a 14 stage slick-water plug-and-perf completion with three to five perforations per stage, for a total of 51 intervals, and approximately 55 tons of proppant per interval.
The 06-26 well was tested for 72 hours with a restricted bottom hole choke (15/64 inch) due to infrastructure constraints, which Blackbird plans to mitigate over the course of 2015. Over the final 48 hour test period, the well was flowing up tubing with a flowing tubing pressure of 501 psi and a bottom-hole flowing pressure of 2,820 psi at a rate of approximately 407 BOEPD (56% gas).
The 05-26 well was drilled to a total measured depth of 4,621 meters including a horizontal lateral of 1,951 meters (6,401 feet). The well was stimulated with a 13 stage slick-water plug-and-perf completion, which included three to five perforations per stage, for a total of 49 intervals, and approximately 55 tons of proppant per interval. Over the final 48 hours of the 64-hour testing period, the well was flowing up tubing with a flowing pressure of 305 psi at a rate of approximately 466 BOEPD (67% liquids).
