I recommend to read the whole article at least twice First of all Michael Duncan said they might test the reservoir for 9 months Panr currently holds an approval by the DOG to run 7,5 months of testing So they requested to extend this period to 9 monhts 2/9
I dont see a reason to believe that voids their existing permit and if it did they had to issue an RNS about it immediately But now to the interesting part What could this imply? 3/9
They can use 150 mcf of the estimated 150-500 mcf nat gas to power generators and for gas lift They said thats the amount of gas to be expected at 500-1000 bopd production So if they request permission to flare gas over 9 months this means there is a possibility that oil flow 4/9
after 9 mos exceeds 500 bopd because only in that case they need to flare gas Their initial modeling assumed 8000ft of lateral @нотαru bopd initial flow But they did just 5300 ft of lateral to play it safe In super basic calc thats 66% of length and 800 bopd of initial flow 5/9
So according to the decline curve we would expect 900 bopd after 9 mos for 10.000ft lateral or 480 bopd for the 5.300ft (simple calc) This matches quite well with their request! now some more info possibly related to this 6/9
The company announced already that the reservoir quality exceeded the estimates significantly Their assumptions made in the may presentation are likely too low Which *COULD* result in higher flows So imho these are the reasons why i believe they applied for an extended time 7/9
of flaring Which is good news for shareholders as longer period of flaring means higher oil flows for longer because they can consume all gas below 500 bopd oil flow What would be the worst case ? Lets say they dont get the permit ? This would mean they have to compress 8/9
and transport the NG and sell it at current sky high prices or inject more of it into the well As stated in this PN article they are able to do so I am sure Panrs partner Alaska CNG would be happy to help getting rid of the excess gas, if needed END petroleumnews.com/pntruncate/740…
