Operations on Baltic Basin concessions in northern Poland
3Legs Resources plc (the "Company"), an independent oil and gas group focusing
on the exploration and development of unconventional oil and gas resources,
announces the following operational update.
· The Company commenced further testing of the Lebien LE-2H horizontal
well on 27 October 2012, flowing natural gas initially with the assistance of
a nitrogen lift.
· The well has continued to flow natural gas unassisted, through 3½ inch
tubing, since the nitrogen lift was suspended on 29 October.
· The well has flowed continuously and unassisted at a rate of between
560 and 780 mscf/d of natural gas over the 8-day period since 29 October.
· The well has also produced between 320 and 450 barrels of frac water
per day as it has continued to clean up, and as at 6 November 2012
approximately 26% of the frac water originally injected had been recovered.
· This performance represents a significant improvement on the result
achieved when the well was first tested in 2011 where the well flowed, with
the assistance of a nitrogen lift, at a rate of between 450 and 520 mscf/d
over an 8-day period prior to being shut in.
· The plan is to continue further testing of the well in order to
determine a stabilised flow rate and to gather additional data on well
· The Company will issue a further update to the market in due course.
Kamlesh Parmar, Chief Executive of 3Legs Resources,said:
"We have started further testing of the Lebien LE-2H well and we are very
pleased that the well is showing a significantly improved performance as
compared to 2011, in that the well now flows without the assistance of a
nitrogen lift, and it flows at a better rate than it did in 2011. We will
continue to monitor the encouraging data from this further testing and will
issue a further announcement in due course."
