Source: www.oilegypt.com 1/13/2022, Location: Africa

United Oil & Gas PLC ("UOG"), the growing oil and gas company with a portfolio of production, development, exploration and appraisal assets is pleased to announce successful test results and commencement of production from the Al Jahraa-13 development well ("AJ-13"), in the Abu Sennan licence, onshore Egypt, which is operated by Kuwait Energy Egypt.

Highlights

- Well tested with flow rates of:
- 897 bopd and 0.95 mmscf/d gas (c. 1,087 boepd gross; 239 boepd net) on a 64/64" choke
- 623 bopd and 0.47 mmscf/d gas (c. 717 boepd gross; 158 boepd net) on a 32/64" choke

- The well has now been tied into the existing facilities and brought on stream at an initial rate of c. 600 bopd gross on a 48/64" choke. This is less than eight days from completion, rapidly adding additional production and revenue to the Company

- The ECDC-6 rig will now move to drill the ASD-2 development well, the first well in the 2022 campaign

As previously announced, the AJ-13 well, which is a follow up to the successful Al Jahraa-8 well, safely reached a TD of 3,840m, several days ahead of schedule and under-budget. The well has been logged and interpreted to have encountered 17.5m of net oil pay across the Upper and Lower Bahariya reservoir targets, in line with the range of pre-drill expectations.

The AJ-13 well is the fifth and final well in the Abu Sennan 2021 drilling programme. The ECDC-6 rig, used to drill the AJ-13 well, will now move to commence the 2022 drilling programme, starting with the ASD-2 development well. The ASD-2 well follows on from the exploration success that was made in 2021 with the ASD-1X well. It will target the Abu Roash reservoirs in a more northerly part of the same structure, aiming to access the upside reserves and accelerate production from this field.

A trading and operations update will be issued in late January to summarise 2021 operational activities and to provide initial guidance on 2022 plans and performance expectations.

United holds a 22% working interest in the Abu Sennan licence.

United's Chief Executive Officer, Brian Larkin commented:

"AJ-13 has been brought on stream in less than eight days from completion using the existing facilities and generating production and revenue for the Company. With initial gross production rates of 600 bopd we expect the well to pay back in under nine months, similar to previous wells.

"Following the exceptional drilling success achieved in 2021 we look forward to beginning our 2022 development and exploration drilling programme. The ECDC-6 rig will now move to drill the ASD-2 development well, the first well in our 2022 drilling programme, which is due to spud in the coming weeks."
