OPC Managing Director Piers Johnson made an inaugural trip to Poland in April 2015 to meet Palomar Natural Resources and San Leon Energy, partners in the Rawicz gas well which announced a successful well test result in March. OPC has been providing technical petroleum economics consultancy, an on-site drilling manager and well test analysis support on the project which produced a maximum test rate of 5.3 mmscfd (million cubic feet per day) with an average 24 hour steady flow rate of 4.5 mmscfd. The flow rate and pressure data collected prove a significant gas accumulation at the Rawicz field.
The positive appraisal of the Rawicz gas field is one of few recent success stories in Poland’s E&P sector. Full field development and first gas sales are expected by early 2016.
As well as meeting the Palomar and San Leon management, Piers, local OPC representative Ursula Podlucka and OPC Drilling Manager Dalibor Rogosic had dinner with the Palomar team. Piers also had further meetings with international oil & gas companies and just had time for a whistle-stop tour of Warsaw before flying onto Romania.
Piers commented “I really enjoyed my first visit to Warsaw and it was encouraging to review the positive results from the Rawicz well test with Palomar and San Leon and to discuss further work opportunities with both companies. As a result of the positive feedback on the expertise provided by OPC I have been asked to deliver a training course on well test analysis within the next few months – and I look forward to returning to Warsaw for the course.”
UPDATE : Dates for the Well test analysis training course in Warsaw have been confirmed for 22-24 September 2015. For full details see dedicated page on OPC website.
