American Petro-Hunter has said that its NOJ26 well at the North Oklahoma oil project has reached a total depth of 3,455ft and is now being completed prior to commercial production.

Multiple zones in the target formations will be completed based on strong oil shows from two pay intervals of over 40ft each.

A suite of electronic logs has been run and casing has been set to depth in preparation for perforating the target objectives.

Based on the logs and drilling results, the company and its partners believe that NOJ26 will result in a commercially viable oil well, and the ongoing completion efforts will include flow testing of the oil bearing formations to determine what the well can and will deliver on a BPD (barrel per day) basis.

The upper pay zone directly above the shale exhibited excellent oil shows and log responses indicating a possible capability of delivering over 150 BPD initial production rate, the company said.
