HOUSTON, Oct. 5, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Energy Corp. (OTCBB:LBYE) "Liberty" or "the Company") is pleased to provide a positive operational update on the Dahlstrom #1 well re-entry program.
The company can confirm the well has been producing since the work over which commenced in late August 2010. When work began pressure was low due to suspected sandlocks, however, upon completion of the work the wells pressure stabilized at around 1650PSI.
The company has confirmed that initial production following the re-entry has been three times higher than the level of production prior to the work. The pressure has been so high that the well has been producing despite all the valves being turned off which is strictly due to the amount of down-hole pressure. As a result of this pressure gas has been able to force its way through each one of the valves all the way down the flow line to the gas gatherer's meter.
The company has been monitoring the well continuously, and has noticed water in the well which has been affecting production. In response soap sticks have been deposited in the well, these reduce the hydrostatic weight of the water in the well allowing the gas to rise to the surface.
The company is now evaluating a number of different options to further increase production.
"We are pleased with the initial results of the well and are working hard to solve this matter. We are still confident of being able to increase production by a further 3 to 4 times with the installation of either a soap launcher or compressor. At this time we are working with consultants for the most cost effective solution and are extremely pleased with the teams efforts," said Ian Spowart President and CEO of Liberty Energy Corp.
