Zephyr Energy begins well production tests from Paradox basin project in Utah with encouraging results

July 09, 2024

(WO) – Zephyr Energy plc announced the commencement of the well production test on the State 36-2R LNW-CC well at the company's flagship project in the Paradox basin, Utah.

The well is currrently flowing both natural gas and condensate, and Zephyr is encouraged by initial results.

Over the next two weeks, the well will be flowed and production-tested to more rigorously determine the reservoir pressure, fluid composition, well flow rate and bulk reservoir permeability, and to deliver an early estimate of the overall potential recoverable resources.

Colin Harrington, Zephyr's Chief Executive, said, "Zephyr’s operations team has worked extremely hard to deliver this well, and I am delighted that we are already flowing both natural gas and condensate.  While the preparation for flow testing was extended due to the impact of the heavy weight drilling fluids in the wellbore, coupled with the need for careful operating procedures in a high-pressure environment, I believe the efforts have resulted in a well that has now fully cleaned up and appears to be in a very good state for flow testing.”
