Energy exploration firm US Natural Gas Corp has completed the rework procedure on the Detweiler No 1 well located in Hart County in the US state of Kentucky.

The Detweiler No 1 well was drilled in the early 1960s to a total depth of 1050′, versus the previously reported 950′, with production occurring from the Coniferous formation.

Production had recently slowed in this well due to debris in the down-hole pump, and the well was placed back into production with pressure and fluid recovery commencing.

After completion of the rework procedure, the well is anticipated to produce on average 2bod, the company said.

The company has also completed the installation of its newly acquired Knox Western compressor in Wayne County, West Virginia, US.
