Hillcrest completes six months of West Hazel production


2020-01-31 07:27 MT - News Release


Mr. Donald Currie reports


Hillcrest Petroleum Ltd., further to its news release of July 5, 2019, and Sept. 10, 2019, has provided an update on its operations at West Hazel.

The company has noted six full months of production after all four wells were brought back on production at the West Hazel property.

In early July, 2019, total fluid production (oil and water) was over 4,500 barrels per day, with oil cut estimated at 1.5 per cent to 2 per cent of total fluid. In September, the company announced production averaging over 150 barrels of oil per day, with oil cut increasing to between 2.5 per cent and 3 per cent.

Production performance over the past six months indicates consistently strong fluid flow capacity from the wells and reservoirs. Daily production from the field periodically exceeded 200 barrels per day, indicating the latent production potential from the field, as Hillcrest continues to optimize production operations. Oil rates over the last six months averaged 115 barrels per day, despite reducing total fluid production to minimize sand influx in the wells and operational issues in one of the wells.

"We are pleased with how the field has performed well and have gained valuable insight into how best to optimize production from the wells. Heavy oil operations require more attention and care than light oil, particularly with regard to sand produced with the oil, and our field staff have done an excellent job keeping all running even in severe cold temperatures," states Don Currie, chief executive officer of Hillcrest Petroleum. "The production revenue has created a floor for Hillcrest to work from and we continue to work to improve the company balance sheet and shareholder value. The company will continue to issue updates as developments occur."

We seek Safe Harbor.
