Permex Petroleum Corporation Reports Successful Production from Recompleted Well on New Mexico Property
Vancouver, British Columbia, February 22, 2022 – Permex Petroleum Corporation (CSE: OIL) (OTCQB: OILCF) (FSE: 75P) ("Permex" or the "Company"), a leading junior oil and gas company, announced the successful results obtained from the recompletion of a previously shut-in oil well on its West Henshaw property in Eddy County, New Mexico.
In January 2022, Permex began the pilot re-entry on the West Henshaw well #15-3, one out of the 69 shut-in wells it currently owns. The re-entry and re-stimulation involved the West Henshaw property targeting the Grayburg formation at a depth of 2,850 feet.
The recompletion was successful and came online at an initial rate of 30 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) and now has stabilized at 15 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”). Management believes the production rates from this mature, long-life well to continue with less than 10% decline year on year (“YoY”). The remaining 68 shut-in wells that the company plans to re-enter have potential to yield similar results increasing the company’s total daily production solely by re-entering shut-in wells.
“Our initial well re-entry has yielded promising results, validating our strategy to add sustainable marginal production through low-risk, low-cost recompletions,” said Mehran Ehsan, CEO of Permex Petroleum. “Permex is poised to benefit from the timely ramp-up of our drilling programs given the macroeconomic tailwinds appearing to continue in the near term with WTI oil prices reaching over $90/bbl over the last week. We look forward to sharing additional results of our restimulation efforts in the months ahead as we work diligently to execute on our methodical approach to sustainable, long-term growth.”
Permex’s team will now move on to the next shut-in wells as well as activating the waterflood EOR candidates as part of the Company’s developmental plans tiered towards sustainable growth.
