Well production doing well

Published:

ANTRIM — Oklahoma-based Gulfport Energy Corporation recently announced production results on its Groh 1-12H well near Antrim in Guernsey County.

The Groh 1-12H tested at a peak rate of 1,186 barrels of condensate per day, 2.8 million cubic feet per day of natural gas, and 367 barrels of natural gas liquids per day, assuming full ethane recovery and a natural gas shrink of 18 percent, or 1,935 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The Groh 1-12H well was recently brought online from its resting period. The well was drilled to a true vertical depth of 7,327 feet with a 5,414 foot horizontal lateral. The well tested at a gross peak rate of 1,186 barrels of condensate per day and 2.8 million cubic feet per day of natural gas. Based upon composition analysis, the gas being produced is 1,247 British Thermal Unit-rich gas. Assuming full ethane recovery, the composition above is expected to produce an additional 131 barrels of NGLs per MMCF of natural gas and result in a natural gas shrink of 18 percent. In ethane rejection mode, the composition is expected to yield 50 barrels of NGLs per MMCF of natural gas and result in a natural gas shrink of five percent.

Gulfport currently anticipates it will begin flowing the Groh 1-12H gas and oil into a sales pipeline by the end of January.

As of October 2012, there are currently 24 wells in Guernsey County at various stages, from drilling to production.

Gulfport’s Ryser 1-25H in Harrison County, tested at a peak rate of 1,488 barrels of condensate per day, 5.9 million cubic feet per day of natural gas, and 649 barrels of natural gas liquids per day assuming full ethane recovery and a natural gas shrink of 21 percent, or 2,914 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The peak rate production for the highest producing well in Carroll County, the Chesapeake operated Shaw 5H, is 1,440 barrels of oil equivalent per day, composed of 770 barrels of oil, 180 barrels of natural gas liquids and 2.9 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

“Looking at the Gulfport numbers, along with what we’ve already seen in the region as far as infrastructure and investment, we are beginning to see the true potential of what we have in the Utica Shale Formation,” said Shawn Bennett, field director for Energy In Depth Ohio. “More development means more jobs, and more opportunity for our workforce.”
