Podere Maiar drilling results

 

United Oil & Gas Plc (“UOG”, “United” or the “Company”), the London Stock Exchange listed oil and gas exploration and development company, is pleased to announce positive log results from the drilling of the Podere Maiar 1 (“PM1”) well on the Selva Gas Field in the Podere Gallina licence, onshore Italy.

 

PM1 was successfully drilled to a total depth of 1330m TVD (1307m TVDSS) ahead of schedule and on budget.

 

Downhole log results from Schlumberger confirm a gross gas pay of 53m. The top of the reservoir was encountered at 1245m TVD (1223m TVDSS) some 12m above the level of any previous production wells, including the nearby Selva 6 well.

 

The two main sand levels show high resistivity in the logs, indicating a thick gas-bearing reservoir

 

United Oil & Gas (20%), and its joint venture partners Po Valley Energy (64%; operator) and Prospex Oil and Gas (17%) have agreed to proceed to case, perforate and complete the well and install downhole production equipment.

 

Well completion is targeted to be finished mid-December with flow-testing on a rigless basis planned for early January.

 

Brian Larkin, United CEO, commented:

 

We are very pleased with these initial well results, which confirm the significant potential in the Selva Field. We are looking forward to successfully completing the well operations, and commencing the rigless testing shortly.  This is a great result for our shareholders and we look forward to progressing the licence with our joint venture partners. We will provide a further update when well testing completes”.
