Sino Gas & Energy Progresses With Linxing CBM Program
Sino Gas & Energy Holdings Limited in its update on the program for the Linxing coal bed methane Production Sharing Contract (PSC), located in the Ordos Basin, Shanxi Province, China has said that three drilling rigs are now on location with a fourth rig to be added in late September.
The Linxing East seismic work program continues with over 40% of the 170km data acquisition program completed.
The 2012 work program for Linxing East is comprised of a total of eight new wells, with an additional deep exploration well expected to be drilled following the analysis of seismic results. Each well is anticipated to take approximately 45 days to complete an extensive drilling and coring program. After dewatering, each well will be flow tested for approximately 12 weeks.
“In addition to the work at Linxing East, testing and drilling of two deep wells in Linxing West is also proposed. We are also advancing the planned LNG pilot program on Linxing West,” Sino Gas’ Managing Director & CEO, Robert Bearden said.
