Blackbird Provides Two Significant Condensate and Liquids-Rich Gas Discoveries

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/4/2015, Location: North America

Blackbird Energy Inc. announces that its first two operated horizontal Montney wells, which are located at 06-26-70-07-W6 ("06-26") and 05-26-70-07W6 ("05-26") on Blackbird's 69 section land block at Elmworth, Alberta, Canada, have been successfully completed and tested. The 06-26 and 05-26 wells were drilled into the Middle Montney and Upper Montney intervals respectively, and both wells represent significant condensate and liquids-rich gas discoveries for Blackbird. Blackbird is operator and has a 100% working interest in both wells and its lands at Elmworth.

The 06-26 well, which targeted the Middle Montney interval, was drilled to a total measured depth of 4,734 meters, including a horizontal lateral of 2,052 meters. 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 tonnes of proppant per interval. A total of 15,500m3 (approximately 97,500 barrels) of slick-water was pumped down-hole. The 06-26 well flowed on cleanup, recovering approximately 21.7% of its load fluid prior to being shut-in.

The 06-26 well was tested for 72 hours with a significantly 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 3,451 kPa (501 psi) and a bottom-hole flowing pressure of 19,440 kPa (2,820 psi) at a rate of approximately 407 boe/d (44% liquids), including 1.36 mmcf/d of natural gas, 133 bbls/d of 50 degree API condensate and an estimated 47 bbls/d of plant recoverable natural gas liquids ("NGLs"), for a total liquids to gas ratio of 133 bbls/mmcf. During the 48 hour test, the well returned approximately 717 bbls/d of load fluid, as the well is still cleaning up.

As is industry practice, the well is now shut-in to allow for the reservoir to imbibe load fluids and to gather further pressure data. Further testing is planned following spring break-up to help evaluate the well's potential.

The 05-26 well, which targeted the Upper Montney interval, was drilled to a total measured depth of 4,621 meters including a horizontal lateral of 1,951 meters. 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 tonnes of proppant per interval. A total of 13,800m3 (approximately 86,800 barrels) of slick-water was pumped down-hole. The 05-26 well flowed on cleanup, recovering approximately 32.3% of its load fluid.

The 05-26 well was tested for 64 hours. Over the final 48 hours of the test period, the well was flowing up tubing with a flowing tubing pressure of 2,100 kPa (305 psi) at a rate of approximately 466 boe/d (67% liquids), including 0.9 mmcf/d of natural gas, 281 bbls/d of 46 degree API condensate and an estimated 32 bbls/d of plant recoverable natural gas liquids (total liquids to gas ratio of 341 bbls/mmcf). During the test, the well returned approximately 1,077 bbls/d of load fluid, as the well is still cleaning up. As is industry practice, the well is now shut-in to allow for the reservoir to imbibe load fluids and to gather further pressure data. Further testing is planned following spring break-up to help evaluate the well's potential.
