Sino Gas has hydrocarbons flowing at Linxing hydraulic fracture well onshore China

06th August 2014

Sino Gas & Energy has announced that a flow rate of 2.0 million standard cubic feet (MMscf) per day has been achieved from a middle lower zone of TB-23 on the Linxing Production Sharing Contract (PSC) in the Ordos Basin

Sino Gas & Energy has announced that a flow rate of 2.0 million standard cubic feet (MMscf) per day has been achieved from a middle lower zone of TB-23 on the Linxing Production Sharing Contract (PSC) in the Ordos Basin
The result represents the highest measured gas flow rate from a single fractured zone and is well in excess of the previously recorded maximum flow rate from the middle lower zone of approximately 230 thousand standard cubic feet per day

The four metres pay zone was fracced on TB-23 in the prospective central-western portion of Linxing (West).

Flow testing conducted over five days achieved a stable flow rate of 2.0 MMscf/day at a relatively stable flowing tubing head pressure of 1,250psi (approximately 2.36 MMscf/day calculated at standard field pressure of 200 psi).

“This is a tremendous result, which comes after careful analysis and review to optimise fracture stimulation treatment in recent months,” said Gavin Harper, Sino Gas chairman. “It is the third in a series of successful tests on Linxing (West), with others including testing of a lower level unstimulated zone at TB-26 and the nine stage frac testing of the first horizontal well at TB-1H.”

The result represents the highest measured gas flow rate from a single fractured zone and is well in excess of the previously recorded maximum flow rate from the middle lower zone of approximately 230 thousand standard cubic feet per day. Seismic interpretation of the zone tested shows a high level of frequency across the acreage. Engineering planning is underway to connect the well into the pilot pipeline production programme.
