The co-venturers include operator Midwestern Oil and Gas Company and SunTrust Oil Company.

According to the company, UMU-11 well encountered 89.6 metres of gross oil pay in 13 sands.

The well was intentionally drilled to a shallower depth than UMU-9 and UMU-10 and, therefore, did not encounter the deeper sands from previous wells, Mart Resources added.

The sands selected for completion in the UMU-11 well were the IX, XIIb, and XIIIb sands, with combined gross oil pay of 25.6 metres. Mart Resources said that the cleanup and extended flow tests have been completed on the XIIb and XIIIb sands, with the IX sand yet to be tested.

Wade Cherwayko, CEO of Mart Resources, said, “The initial flow rates from UMU-11 are some of the best we have had to date, in particular from the XIIb sand. This establishes the capability of the field to deliver additional production when the pipeline constraints are removed.”

The testing of the XIIb sand yielded a rate of 3,650 bpd at 41º API crude oil on a 28/64-inch choke setting. Basic sediment and water was 0.4 per cent. During the test of the XIIIb sand, the well flowed 43º API crude oil at a rate of 1,520 bpd on a 32/64 inch choke setting.
