DEEP achieves outstanding flow results in horizontal well test & Tom Kshchuk appointed COO
DEEP Earth Energy Production Corp. (the “Corporation” or “DEEP”) is pleased to announce the results of the Border-5HZ horizontal well. This is the deepest horizontal well in Saskatchewan’s history and the first 90° horizontal fluid production well in the world to be drilled and hydraulically stimulated for geothermal power generation purpose.
The open hole well was tested using a coil tubing nitrogen lift test, which indicated high permeability and flow capability with an absolute open flow capacity in the order of 20,000 cubic metres per day (m3/d) or a productivity index of 0.55 m3/day/kPa. Successful mechanical stimulation and production modeling indicate a highly productive well – twice the productivity of an unstimulated well. This well will sustain commercial production rates (100 litres/sec), while minimizing fluid drawdown. Future production rates will be constrained by well design and pump capacity….
