"A commercial gas flow from this particular Kione sand is positive news for the Dempsey Well and the JV partners,” said Tom Kelly, Empyrean chief executive.

“With preparations underway to test Zone 4 and adding any resulting gas flows together with flows from all zones tested to date, Dempsey is shaping up to provide the JV with early cash flow.

“Infrastructure connected to the well will expedite the timeframe from discovery to gas sales and cashflow. The JV is retaining plenty of flexibility with regards to future testing and production alternatives."

Empyrean shares were up 1.02p or 8.3%, changing hands at 12.38p.
