Enegi to start phase two of Newfoundland well workover

ENEGI Oil has said that it will begin the second phase of a workover programme of its PAP#1 wll in Newfoundland.

Phase two will begin within the next two weeks and follows a successful first phase which improved pressure recovery rates and the connectivity between the well head and its reservoir.

During the first phase, which involved a chemical soak to improve connectivity, the well was flowed for nine and a half-hours per day over a four-day period and produced between 75 and 94 barrels of oil per day.

Manchester-based Enegi Oil said the second phase, which will take four weeks to complete, will involve flowing the well for three days and then closing it after squeezing parraffin solvents, dispersants and dead crude down it.

Pressure recovery rates will then be monitored before reopening it for a further two days.

Once complete, dependent upon results, the workover programme will be followed by an extended well test, during which the parameters for production from the well will be determined and preparations made to open it.

Enegi Oil CEO Alan Minty said: “As previously announced, indications are that the completed elements of the workover allow a sustainable production rate of 200 bopd which would mean the well is economic.  

“The results of the initial programme are encouraging and we eagerly await the outcome of the second phase.”
