Grid Petroleum Corp. (OTCBB: GRPR) has received a preliminary report of the initial flow testing of the Bardo Sand, the deepest potential pay zone of the Garcia #3 well.
The top of this sand was encountered at a depth of 3,520 in the Garcia #3 well, where it is present in the form of two lobes. The top lobe is 10-feet thick and has very good Rwa log response. A core in the top of this zone at 3,522 feet analyzed gas. A core at 3,523 feet was transitional between gas and oil and the remaining cores in this lobe analyzed oil. The permeability's in this lobe analyzed between 51 and 115 millidarcies and the porosities ranged between 25.8%-27.8%. The second lobe is 6-feet thick and shows good Rwa response on the triple-combo log. Cores in this zone analyzed oil with permeability's ranging from 140-265 millidarcies and porosities from 28.8%-30%.
Workover unit was moved onto the Garcia #3, tubing was run to bottom ensuring total depth of well bore. The rig then ran a Baker packer in the hole on 2 3/8-in tubing, packer was set just above the top of the Bardo Sand zone.
Wireline services were then brought onto location to run a cement bond log, utilizing the Gama Ray tool to detect cement bonding on both the casing and outside formation, which proved to be in excellent condition.
Wireline services then ran into the hole through the 2 3/8-in tubing a perforating gun to shoot the top four feet of the Bardo Sand, perforating the casing.
After Wireline services completed perforating the initial test zone, the workover rig began to swab the tubing to take the hydrostatic head off of the Bardo Sand formation to allow hydrocarbons to the surface. After the fifth swab run, the well began to flow gas to the surface on its own. The gas flowing pressure grew to 200 PSI with a shut in pressure of 750 PSI.
The well will be allowed to flow to ensure that the gas has cleaned up any downhole drilling fluids before any performance flow-testing can be completed.
