Mosman Oil & Gas #MSMN – Falcon Production

Mosman Oil and Gas Limited (AIM: MSMN) the oil exploration, development and production company, is pleased to announce that further to the Operations update on 17 February, the Falcon-1 well in East Texas, USA returned to gas and oil (condensate) production on 21 February as the freezing weather conditions eased.

John W Barr, Chairman, said: “The widespread production challenges in Texas last week, was partly created by the rolling blackouts and freezing weather conditions. Mosman is pleased that the operator at Falcon and the on-site contractors have reinstated production and kept downtime to a minimum.”

Mosman Oil & Gas #MSMN – Operations update

Mosman Oil and Gas Limited (AIM: MSMN) the oil exploration, development and production company, announces an update on operations in the US.

Stanley

The Operator has recently recompleted Stanley-1 in a zone that has been productive in Stanley-2, and initial flow rates (3 day average) are 47 bopd gross. The Company will provide a further update in due course once production rates have stabilised at Stanley-1. 

Stanley-2, 3 and 4 continue to produce oil, with a total project production (including Stanley 1) of circa 260 bopd (3 day average) gross. Mosman has 16-18% working interest in these wells. Water production is managed by on-site water injection that has not been affected by recent unusual cold weather conditions.

Falcon

Minor equipment upgrades have been installed at the Falcon-1 well. The well has been temporarily shut-in since 15 February due to the weather conditions, to avoid water vapour freezing in the gas lines. Oil production and produced water is stored in tanks and has to be trucked off site. The Operator expects to have the well back on production once freezing conditions end, which are forecast to improve and warm up on Saturday. Mosman has 50% working interest in this well. Further updates will be provided in due course. 

Other Production

The majority of current production comes from the Stanley and Falcon projects. Mosman has not been advised of any effect of the weather on other facilities such as Greater Stanley and Arkoma.

Drilling opportunities

Mosman confirms its intention to participate in the drilling of multiple wells in the 2021 year.

The candidates for drilling include wells at the Stanley project (where four wells have already been drilled with a 100% drilling success rate) and other wells in East Texas, including wells at Greater Stanley, Cinnabar and Galaxie. Of these projects, Mosman only has control of the timing of operations where it is the Operator, at the Cinnabar lease.

The Cinnabar lease acquisition is considered a potential cornerstone of the Challenger Project to re-develop the proven oil producing area. Mosman has 97% working interest (reducing to 85% upon drilling of the first well) in the Cinnabar lease and is the Operator. The initial review of existing data has led Mosman to commit to a full field redevelopment study that will be based on technical work which includes the following: 

· Acquiring additional seismic data

· Reprocessing the seismic data

· Revised geological model

· Acquiring additional leases

· Identifying optimal drilling locations

· Designing wells

· Drilling planning

The successful drilling of Falcon-1 means there are several prospects to be drilled in the Falcon and Galaxie lease area (Champion Project). The Falcon-1 well production data will be used to estimate the size of that gas field, and to update the geological model, before a decision is made where to drill the next well in the Champion Project. Mosman has 50% interest in the Falcon lease and 60% working interest in the Galaxie lease.

There are several potential wells in the Greater Stanley area that require further work before being ready to drill. The work includes leasing, gaining well spacing approval and technical work to determine optimal target locations. The zone that is producing at Stanley-1 and 2 is thought to extend in to the Duff lease, and is a candidate for recompletion of the Duff-2 well. Mosman has 20% working interest in the Duff lease.

John W Barr, Chairman, said: “Mosman appreciates the work and effort that is involved in getting a project completed and maintaining solid production. Presently, the Covid pandemic, heavy rain and this severe cold weather are examples of reasons why things sometimes take longer than anticipated.

“For the moment, the safety of people, and the operations is imperative. Hopefully, normality will return shortly, along with communications that have been difficult due to rolling power blackouts.”

Mosman Oil & Gas #MSMN – Stanley Operations Update

Mosman Oil and Gas Limited (AIM: MSMN) the oil exploration, development and production company, announces an operations update for the Stanley project in East Texas.

 

Stanley 

The average gross production rate in the last week was 210 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) compared to the daily average gross production for the six months ending 31 December 2020 of 139 bopd.

Stanley-3 and Stanley-4 continue to produce oil without artificial lift. Stanley-3 is averaging a rate of circa 50 bopd (gross) and Stanley-4 circa 120 bopd (gross).

The second-hand pump-jack installed at Stanley-2 is now fully operational, after some initial problems with the motor that required replacing. In the last week this well has averaged over 40 bopd (gross).

A workover on Stanley-1 commenced prior to the installation of an additional second-hand pump-jack that has already been purchased. Flow rates will be advised once stable flow has been re-established.

Based on discussions with Mosman’s JV partners, it is still anticipated that Stanley-5 will be drilled in the second quarter of the calendar year, and after Stanley-1 is fully back on production.

Mosman’s working interest in the Stanley wells varies from 16 to 18%.

John W Barr, Chairman of Mosman commented: “Mosman has clearly set out a vigorous operational agenda for 2021, and the workovers at Stanley are an essential element to maintaining strong production. As stated previously, Mosman has opportunities to participate in several potential wells in 2021. The candidates for drilling include two wells at the Stanley project and other wells in East Texas, including wells at Cinnabar and the Galaxie well. The exact order and timing of wells has not been finalised and depends on the results of completion of the current round of detailed technical work.”

Mosman Oil & Gas #MSMN – Six Monthly Production and Operations update

Mosman Oil and Gas Limited (AIM: MSMN) the oil exploration, development and production company, announces its production summary for the six months ended on 31 December 2020 and an operations update.

Falcon-1 producing gas and condensate

The Falcon-1 well at the Champion project commenced commercial production in December 2020. Falcon-1 is now producing approximately 180 boepd (gross).  Mosman’s net production is 90 boepd (50% working interest) which is 68 boepd after royalties.

This is a significant well for Mosman, being both the highest gross production well and the highest working interest well in Mosman’s portfolio. The net effect is that daily production rates increase significantly, at this rate more than doubling net production rates compared to the average daily rate for the six months ended 31 December 2020.

Six Month Production Summary to 31 December 2020 

During the period there was continued disruption from the pandemic along with the requirement for certain workovers at Stanley, but significantly the Falcon-1 well commenced production. 

Net Production attributable to Mosman for the six months was 8,650 boe.

Drilling opportunities

Mosman has an opportunity to participate in several potential wells in 2021. The intention is to participate in drilling at least one well each quarter.

The candidates for drilling include two wells at the Stanley project (where four wells have already been drilled with a 100% drilling success rate) and other wells in East Texas, including wells at Cinnabar and the Galaxie well.

The exact order and timing of wells has not been finalised and depends on the results of completion of the current round of technical work . Drilling and workovers may be funded from existing cash resources, proceeds of sale of assets, as well as other funding alternatives.

The exercise of existing warrants may provide additional funds, and there is also the potential to farmout interests in one or more wells to third parties. 

Cinnabar and Champion Projects

Mosman has a 97% working interest (reducing to 85% upon drilling of the first well) in the Cinnabar lease and is now officially recorded as the Operator of the Cinnabar lease.

At Cinnabar, a Third Party Independent Report (1) has identified existing Proven plus Probable reserves of 849,000 barrels of hydrocarbons. Technical work is underway to optimise a field redevelopment of Cinnabar, including further 3D seismic evaluations on Cinnabar to ensure that it is drilled most effectively. The Company is targeting drilling two wells at Cinnabar during the calendar year 2021 subject to funding and other matters. Two wells drilled at Cinnabar in the 1980s are still producing.  Flow rates from both these wells were historically over 100 bopd and Mosman anticipates that a similar production profile can be achieved from future wells at Cinnabar.

The Champion project currently consists of two leases. Mosman has a 50% interest in the Falcon lease, and a 60% working interest in the Galaxie lease. The project area has multiple prospects identified by 3D seismic that may be drilled in due course. The largest prospect is Galaxie, and this is likely to be the next prospect drilled. There is some preliminary work required to determine the exact surface location based on existing roads and pipelines, and to plan production infrastructure. The Company is using the current flow rate from Falcon to indicate the potential flow rates at Galaxie.

It is anticipated that a well will be drilled at either Cinnabar or Galaxie in the second quarter of 2021. Each project differs in attributes and costs, and further evaluation is required in order to prioritise and proceed. For example, Cinnabar is predominantly oil, whilst indications are that Galaxie is more likely to be gas.

Stanley

Stanley-3 and Stanley-4 continue to produce oil.

The operator has recently advised that to increase flow rates, a pump-jack has been installed at Stanley-2 and is now operational.  A second pump-jack has also been acquired for Stanley-1 and is expected to be installed in the next two weeks.

Based on discussions with Mosman’s JV partners, it is anticipated that Stanley-5 will be drilled after Stanley-1 is back on production. Subject to funding and other matters the Company is also targeting a sixth well at Stanley towards the end of calendar year 2021. Mosman anticipates that future wells at Stanley will have a similar production profile to those already drilled.

Greater Stanley

The workover at Duff-1 was not able to remove the wellbore obstruction required to recomplete in the target zone, and the well was placed back on production. The joint venture now plans to workover the other producing well in another target zone.

Sale of Welch and Arkoma 

Mosman has signed a contract to sell Welch (announced on 4 January 2021) with settlement scheduled for 15 January 2021.

As announced, Mosman considers Arkoma to be a non-core asset and it is held for sale. 

John W Barr, Chairman of Mosman commented : “Mosman is well positioned for strong production growth in 2021. We are particularly encouraged with the results from Falcon-1 and the cash-flow that will be derived from that well, as we plan the 2021 year and beyond.”
