Per RNS 16 May 2022, the Fouke 2 well at Pine Mills was put into production in May 2022 and sales have commenced (to be reflected in Q2-2022). The well was tested and flowed at a rate of 145 bopd over a 24-hour period with a 0% watercut and is currently on production at 140 bopd with a 0% water cut. The offset Fouke 1 current production rate has been increased to 110 bopd also with a 0% water cut with the objective of increasing this further as previously reported.
Additional facility improvements at Pine Mills (where the Company owns 100% WI) are being planned to improve both handling capacity and up-time.
The Company acquired the Grant East Lease (100% WI) during the first quarter and drilled the Grant East 1 well in May 2022. The well is currently being completed and tested after it was stimulated.
Matt Lofgran, Nostra Terra's Chief Executive Officer, said:
"On the 5th of January we announced our 2022 corporate goals, one of which was to drill 3-4 new wells, using internally generated funds. It's May and we have already drilled 2 new wells this year, using these resources, and are confident that we can achieve this objective before year end as planned.
However, our primary focus remains on increasing cashflow, where we have been making great strides this year due to a combination of increased production volumes and higher average pricing. I look forward to updating everyone both on our progress towards achieving our goals and the results from the Grant East 1 in due course."
