Carpathian moves Ja3a to production test

Carpathian has begun long term production testing on its Ja3a in the Czech Republic, running the well at a stabilised rate of 43,000 cubic metres of gas per day (1.5 million cubic feet).

The well will be flowed for 10 days after which there will be a 14 day shut-in period. The test data will be used to calculate reserves and the production potential of the well.

Ja3a is designed to twin the abandoned and plugged exploration well Ja3 that was drilled in 1966, with the top of the primary objective Karpat sandstone reservoir at around 1030 metres measured depth.

The well is located in the Janovice gas field, which was discovered and evaluated under the former Czechoslovakian communist regime. Recoverable reserves were established within the area of the two discovery wells but no production occurred.

The Janovice field is located in the Czech Republic about 20km south of Ostrava and 5 km from Carpathian's Krásná oil field.
