Maha Energy AB (publ) (“Maha” or the “Company”) Provides Operational Update and Announces Total Depth Reached on Attic Well (7-TIE-1D-BA) and Logging Results.

The Company is pleased to provide the following Operational Update from its operations in Brazil.

Attic Well (Tie Field)

The Attic development well (7-TIE-1D-BA) reached a Total Depth of 2,607 m. on April 4.  All targets, including the Boipeba formation, were intersected.  Electric logging has been completed and the well is now being prepared for production. The previously unexplored Boipeba formation was penetrated, but poor reservoir development yielded no productive hydrocarbon zones worthy of completion.

Electric logging and drilling results confirmed the productive Agua Grande (AG) and Sergi formations are likely to be oil bearing.  The AG yielded 24 m. gross reservoir sand with a net productive thickness of 22 m.  The Sergi yielded 18 m. gross reservoir sand with a net productive thickness of 10 m.

Operations are now underway to complete the AG and Sergi formations and place 7-TIE-1D-BA on production.  As soon as the 7-TIE-1D-BA well is on production, the GTE-3 well will be converted to a dual producer.

107 D (Tartaruga Field)
The Brasserv Rig #149 was mobilized to the Tartaruga field on April 7 and has commenced operations to prepare the 107D well for production.  A 2-7/8” jet pump completion string will be run into the well followed by a coiled tubing unit that will be mobilized as soon as possible to perforate the 3-1/2” horizontal liner.  Results from this perforation will be communicated in due course. 

Jonas Lindvall, CEO of Maha Energy commented “You will recall the Boipeba formation was an exploration target we were able to penetrate during the drilling of the Attic development well at little incremental cost.  The important news here is the success of our development well penetrating the oil producing AG and Sergi formations. We look forward to this well being put on production.”
