UnionTown Energy has completed the phase of engineering and testing at the New Miami #42-20H well. The company has ordered for the required elements in order to confirm the completion and has prepared work plans for bringing this well on pump. It is likely to put on a pump in the well and will be announcing the production results in the fourth quarter of 2011.
The order includes treater, downhole submergible pump and oil storage tanks and the company will be receiving these components before the middle of September.
A water tank will be in bind by the Roustabout groups for the ensuing water production at the short-term dumping well located near the Hanson lease till the usage of the on location water disposal well is agreed. The company is anticipating the approval by late November.
The company is anticipating the presence of service drill rigs onsite in the coming weeks. After the arrival of the rig onsite, the company will start acidifying the pay zone located in the horizontal leg subsequently re-swabbing the well and then eliminate the tubing. Then, a submersible pump will be fixed and the well will be put on pump.
UnionTown drilled this well in June, 2011. The design of the New Miami #42-20H well was to pierce in a parallel direction and is open around 2,000 ft of the Sun River Dolomite pay zone. Additionally, two secondary pay zones of the Madison structure were identified during the process of the horizontal drilling.
The company scheduled to drill this New Miami #42-20H well out of the 17 prospective wells in total on the property. This New Miami well is one of the two primary wells. UnionTown believes that these two initial wells will have an exploration hazard in the low range as those wells compensate from the two former well drilled vertically, which detected the occurrence of a near surface oil accumulation in the region.
More than 1,480 A of land present in northwest Montana’s Sweetgrass Arch regions are included in this New Miami property.
