Eland Oil & Gas update on Opuama-8 and 9 infill wells

Testing and production of the three reservoirs penetrated by well Opuama-8 continues. The deepest of the reservoirs tested, the D5000, flowed at 3,250 bopd on a 40/64″ choke with a flowing tubing head pressure (FTHP) of 50 bar (725 psi) while the shallowest tested, the D3500, flowed at 2,980 bopd on a 40/64″ choke with a FTHP of 47 bar (680 psi). Testing of the third reservoir, the D4000, will commence shortly. The test rates are encouraging and within expectation. The drilling of the Opuama-9 infill well by the OES Teamwork Rig continues, although there have been some delays due to mechanical issues with the Rig. The 16″ hole has been drilled to a depth of 3,348 ft and the 13 3/8″ casing has since been run. The rig has begun to drill the 12 ¼” hole with current depth 6,016 ft to a targeted Total Vertical Depth (TVD) of 9,033 ft. Completion and Production from Opuama-9 is expected within Q1.
