“Cambay-77H is the first horizontal well with multi-stage fracture treatments to successfully be production tested in India,” said Ron Miller, managing director of Oilex.

“The production test flow period is now complete and the shut-in period has commenced.”

The test is focused on acquiring long term performance data which is essential for assessment of reservoir properties and will supplement surface data collected during flowback.

A five-day shut-in period preceded the test to allow the well to stabilise after around 85 days of flowback production.

Upon completion, the instrumentation deployed downhole will be recovered and the data downloaded for analysis.

The formal test has two distinct sections.

The first was a 300-hour (12.5 days) flow period, where the well has flowed on a constant choke size after achieving stable flow soon after opening (now completed).

The second is a 300-hour shut-in period, where data will continue to be recorded and monitored. This period may be extended depending upon the well response.

Oilex intends to announce the successful recovery of the instrumentation and data followed by an announcement regarding the flowback and test results after a preliminary analysis of the data has been completed.
