Brookside Energy (BRK) have commenced hydraulic fracturing at its Jewell Well, located in the Anadarko Basin, Oklahoma.
Hydraulic fracturing, or hydrofracking, is a well-stimulation technique involving the fracturing of bedrock formations by a pressurised liquid.
Liberty Oilfield Services will be undertaking the multi-stage hydrofracking stimulation at Jewell.
During these “plug and perforate” operations, each stage will be treated individually before moving onto the next.
The company is expecting the first stage to be completed within seven to ten days.
The company has commenced a potential five-year, 20-plus well development drilling program across its three operated development areas — Jewell, Flames and Rangers in the SWISH AOI, in the Andarko Basin.
Last week, Brookside raised $9 million to fast track these developments, with a main focus on the Rangers Well.
The Rangers Well is the second well in the program and BRK is working towards bringing the timetable forward for its development.
Just before the market opens, Brookside last traded at 3.3 cents per share.
