Next, the company intends to work on the Alvares structure in the third quarter of 2018.

"Thanks to the close proximity of existing infrastructure owned by the JV, the Dempsey Well can be connected to the sales pipeline in an expedited timeframe,” said Tom Kelly, Empyrean chief executive.

“With production of commercial gas flows at 1,200 mcf per day imminent, we look forward to reaping the benefit from this early cash flow as one of the JV partners with a 30% working interest.”

Kelly added: “Additionally, there is significant upside potential from nearby wells where plans are in place to connect four idle wells into the grid to further increase production and cash flow.
