Hawkley Oil & Gas (ASX: HOG) has flowed commercial gas and condensate on a narrow choke during testing of its Sorochynska 202 well in Ukraine.
During the test, the Upper B18 interval flowed at a calculated rate of about 0.9 million cubic feet of gas per day while the clean out of the considerable volumes of water and nitrogen used during the installation of the through tubing inflatable packer.
Hawkley expects the well to be brought into production with an increased choke size and the corresponding increase in flow rate.
It will carry out extended production testing over next few weeks to establish optimal choke size and stabilised flow rate projections.
These tests will provide a clear indication of recoverable reserves from this well and also provide a greater level of understanding about the longer term potential of the reservoir.
The company is also laying flow line to connect the Sorochynska 201 and 202 wells to its owned and operated gas processing plant.
Commissioning of the plant is expected in mid-February and is expected to result in higher production rates and lower operating costs.
