(25 Jun 2014, Hong Kong) MIE Holdings Corporation (“MIE” or the “Company”, together with the subsidiaries, the “Group”; Stock Code: 1555), an independent oil and gas company engaged in the exploration and production of oil and gas in China, Kazakhstan and USA, is pleased to announce positive test results from the TB-26 vertical well within the Linxing Production Sharing Contract (“PSC”), operated by Sino Gas ＆ Energy Ltd (“SGE”), MIE’s joint venture investment.
A 4 meter gas zone of the lower reservoir in Well TB-26 was perforated and flowed at a stable rate of 1.2 mmscf/day, with stable tubing head pressure of 1,740 psi (12MPa). This is an encouraging result given no fracture stimulation performed for such test rate and the tested interval is located in the lower (i.e. deeper) part of the reservoir, and previously considered as less prolific zone, and now proven with significant potential in terms of resources and production from its test result. The TB-26 vertical well has currently being shut in for pressure build up to gather reservoir information for Chinese Reserve Reporting purposes.
TB-26 was drilled in a prospective resource area, located in the northwestern part of Linxing West block, where no contingent resources or reserves have been assigned by RISC Pty Ltd in the gas resources and reserves estimate report prepared for the year ended December 31, 2013. MIE believes that the test results will further validate the potential of Linxing PSC.
SGE will soon commence work on testing of another vertical well within the same area, TB-22 and the first horizontal well in Linxing, TB-1H. The testing of these two important wells is scheduled to be complete during the third quarter of 2014.
