Testing completed on Netherlands L11-13 well

The L11-13 well offshore Netherlands tested dry gas at a maximum stabilized flow rate of 820,000 Nm3/day (30.6 MMcf/d) on an 48/64-in. choke at a flowing wellhead pressure of 200 bar (2,900 psig), according to Cirrus Energy Corp.

CALGARY, Canada -- The L11-13 well offshore Netherlands tested dry gas at a maximum stabilized flow rate of 820,000 Nm3/day (30.6 MMcf/d) on an 48/64-in. choke at a flowing wellhead pressure of 200 bar (2,900 psig), according to Cirrus Energy Corp.

The well was directionally drilled from the L11b-A production platform into the L8-D field, which potentially straddles the L8a, L8b, and L11b blocks.

These results are being integrated with existing data on the L8-D field, which was discovered by well L8-16x drilled in 2004. The L8-16x well was drill stem tested at rates up to 430,000 Nm3/day (16.1 MMcf/day) of gas from the same Permian-aged Upper Rotliegend group sandstone reservoirs, the company says. The bottom-hole reservoir penetration at L11-13 is located approximately 5.9 km (3.7 mi) away from the L8-16x discovery well.
