Bengal Energy Ltd. (TSX:BNG) announced that it has received initial production testing results from recently-drilled wells at the Australian Cuisinier oil field, commenting that new oil production from three of the four wells totals about 1,800 barrels of oil per day — more than was expected initially.

As quoted in the press release:

Additional incremental production is expected in the near future when the Cuisinier North 1 and Barta North 1 wells are commissioned. All of these wells will be produced under recently issued Extended Production Tests (“EPT’s”). Oil from these new wells will be trucked to a sales point under the current production system. Current Cuisinier facility capacity is limited to approximately 1,300 barrels per day (net 325 bopd to Bengal) provided that two triple tanker loads are available daily.

In addition, the previously announced 224 square kilometer 3D seismic program has commenced and will evaluate the area to the north of the Cuisinier pool for additional prospectivity in both the Murta and deeper zones.
