Maha Energy AB (publ) (“Maha” or the “Company”) Announce Strong Tie-2 Flow Rates and an Operational Update

The Company is pleased to announce that the recently completed Tie-2 well is free flowing oil and gas at a rate of 1,825 BOPD and 1,083 MSCFPD (2,005 BOEPD1) on a 1-1/2” choke with a stable tubing-head flowing pressure. A follow up well west of Tie 2, Tie-3, was spudded on 18th  December and is expected to take about 60 days to drill and complete.  The completion issues with the GTE-4 well have been rectified and the well is now being cleaned up and flowing oil and gas to the Tie Production Facilities.

Jonas Lindvall, CEO of Maha Energy commented “The Tie-2 well is delivering oil rates above expectations and with the issues with the GTE-4 completion now behind us we are finally heading in the right direction in Brazil.  We now leave 2020 behind us and look forward to a strong start to 2021 underpinned by a solid production capacity.”
