American Petro-Hunter has reported that the recently completed NOS122 well at its North Oklahoma project in the US is undergoing production testing.

The well appears to be a strong producer and is outperforming expectations to date, the company said.

The production test and evaluation phase has been ongoing over the past few weeks with high gravity light oil produced to the storage tank from a six foot pay zone.

The oil cut has been steadily over 90% with some associated gas, and the well has been producing oil at rates in a broad range generally between 50 and 70 barrels per day.

Although a stable daily production rate hasn’t yet been established, the company said that the pay zone would benefit from a light fracture stimulation which would in all likelihood allow a significant increase in daily rates.

American Petro-Hunter holds a 50% working interest in the NOS122 well.
