Gulfport Energy reports Utica Shale results Gulfport's Shugert 1-12H well in the Utica Shale was tested following the conclusion of its 60-day resting period. The well was flow tested over 48 hours, reaching an average sustained 18 hour rate of 28.5 MMCF per day of natural gas and 300 barrels of condensate per day. Subsequent to the test, the 12 hour wellhead shut in casing pressure was 5,250 psi. Based upon composition analysis, the gas being produced is 1204 BTU rich gas. Assuming full ethane recovery, the composition above is expected to produce an additional 102 barrels of NGLs per MMCF of natural gas and result in a natural gas shrink of 10%. In ethane rejection mode, the composition is expected to yield 41 barrels of NGLs per MMCF of natural gas and result in a natural gas shrink of 2%. Gulfport currently anticipates it will begin flowing the Shugert 1-12 H into a sales pipeline by the end of January.
