Supernova Energy has announced that the company has completed work on the latest round of planned improvements at its Asmussen oil and gas lease in Kansas.

Asmussen Lease, Butler County – 80 acres – 87.5% Working Interest

The Asmussen Lease was brought back online by the Company in November 2015 and currently produces oil from one well (Asmussen 16-3). The lease also has a recently converted salt water disposal well (Asmussen 16-1). Historically, the Asmussen Lease has been producing from the Arbuckle formation since 1965. As of yearend 2015, it has produced 243,707 barrels of oil. Supernova is the operator of the lease which is equipped with electricity and is currently held by production (HDP).

Completed improvements at Asmussen include a downhole submersible pump upgrade for the producing 16-3 well. The 16-3 well is currently equipped with newer pumping equipment and has available electrical capacity to allow for the upgraded downhole pump. Due to the recently converted salt water disposal well, the Asmussen lease is also capable of handling the increased flow rate.

"With increased fluid flows and oil production the Asmussen 16-3 well proved to be an ideal candidate for a downhole submersible pump upgrade," comments Kevin Malone, Supernova Energy CEO. "We are very pleased with the success of the well upgrades and the investment in a new higher capacity downhole pump. We look forward to completing the same upgrade on additional wells owned by our Company."

Supernova Energy, Inc. is the operator of and majority working interest owner in a total of 8 oil and gas leases — 4 of which are currently producing. In total, the oil and gas leases cover over 1,300 acres in the state of Kansas.
