Maha Energy AB (publ) (“Maha” or the “Company”) May Production Volumes
The Company's aggregate sales production for the month of May totaled 74,9921 barrels of oil and 33.717 million scf of gas for a combined average production of approximately 2,600 BOE/day2, before royalties and taxes.
The Company’s anticipated production increases from its recent drilling activity and capital program are expected in its June production totals as the Company works on normal course operational “de-bugging” of its new facilities and wells. In this regard – no oil was delivered from the Tartaruga Field during the month of May as well testing of the 107D well produced ‘off spec’ oil temporarily. During clean-up, the 107D well, produced oil, water and drilling mud which in turn created unexpected oil/water emulsion issues in the tank farm. This necessitated additional treatment procedures which in turn slowed down crude oil deliveries. This issue is being addressed and the Tartaruga Battery is expected to return to full capacity in the next two weeks.
The Attic well which tested 1,691 BOEPD on May 6, 2019, was recompleted to a dual 2-3/8” tubing production well during the month of May in order to accommodate the tubing constrained production volumes. As part of the recompletion work, the Company carried out extensive pressure testing that caused unexpected delays in bringing the Attic well on production. The Company is now pleased to report that the Attic well is now producing into the Tie Battery.
