Brookside Energy (BRK) has progressed its Jewell Well in Oklahoma’s Anadarko Basin into production.
The well is producing oil, gas and natural gas liquids, with the company set to take advantage of strengthening prices for all three production streams in light of its unhedged production.
In a statement today Brookside said commercial production and sales were established during the early part of flow-back and stimulation fluid recovery.
Accordingly, flow rates are reportedly approaching pre-drill base case volume estimates and increasing in line with BRK’s modelled flow-back profile.
The company said material volumes of oil and gas had already been sold with oil trucked to a nearby pipeline terminal and gas transported to a processing facility.
Brookside Managing Director David Prentice said the news marked a major milestone with Jewell being the company’s first operated horizontal oil and gas all in the SWISH Area of Interest.
“I’m obviously very proud of everyone involved and I’m delighted to be able to report these early results from our flagship Jewell Well but I would like to make special mention of the great people that make up the Black Mesa team, whose years of hard work and diligence have delivered this success,” he said.
“Our industry operates around the clock, and we have little time to reflect on this success as we move forward with the Rangers Well, the next well in our potential five-year, 20-plus well development drilling program, and we look forward to bringing everyone news on that front and importantly the ongoing production performance of the Jewell Well over the coming weeks.”
In light of commercial production, the Jewell drill spacing unit (DSU) is now classified as Held by Production (HBP), which will help Brookside book further proved developed and proved undeveloped reserves within the DSU.
Looking ahead, oil and gas sales are projected to continue alongside flow-back operations, with BRK set to report peak rates as they are achieved.
