Operations Update

Elixir Energy Limited (“Elixir” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an operations update on its 100% owned Grandis and Nomgon projects located in Queensland and Mongolia respectively.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Coiled tubing unit cleaning out Daydream-2 wellbore in preparation for DFITs
  • Significant stimulation and testing program at Grandis on track for April through to June
  • Nomgon Pilot Project continues reservoir de-pressurisation process

Grandis Project

A coiled tubing unit has recently been mobilised and is currently cleaning out the Daydream-2 cased wellbore.

Coiled tubing unit at Daydream-2

This cleanout is a pre-cursor to the Diagnostic Formation Integrity Test (DFIT) program which will follow shortly thereafter. The results of this DFIT program will then be used to optimize the subsequent stimulation and flow testing phases of Daydream-2, which will run from April through to around June.

The detailed design of the stimulation and testing program has now been finalized, with a total of 6 zones to be stimulated. These zones cover ~47 metres of pay out a total of 245 metres (being the final sandstone net pay of 180 metres and coals of 65 metres) recorded in the Daydream 2 wellbore (19% of the total net interval). The sandstone net pay advised to the market on 14 December 2023 of 154 metres has been revised upwards following an external independent expert review.

The zones selected represent a cross-section of permeable sands, tight sands and coals. The total zones being tested in Daydream-2 are guided by the key principle of maximizing useful data acquisition from an appraisal well – that would then inform how future development wells would be designed.

In such future development wells, much greater pay would likely be stimulated and flowed. The results from the stimulation program in Daydream-2 will guide the targeting of further zones in future wells and can be extrapolated over the entire gas prone intervals.

The stimulation program, to be conducted by global leading contractor Halliburton, will be followed by a series of flow tests in May and June.

Nomgon Project

In conjunction with this intense program in Queensland, operations also continue at the Nomgon Pilot Project in Mongolia. In Mongolia, the current key objective is to continue to de-pressurise the gas- bearing coal reservoir through the ongoing pumping of water therefrom.

Recently one of the pilot wells, Nomgon-10, was worked over, with a larger downhole pump installed. Increased water rates have already been observed. Elixir’s engineers are actively managing the Pilot Plant to maximise water production and therefore accelerate the time to reach desorption pressure. Data analysis from the Nomgon field indicates that steady progress is being made in reducing the reservoir pressure required to reach the gas desorption pressure.

ASX Oil and Gas Stocks: 5 Biggest Companies in 2024

Experts are calling for continued price volatility in the global oil and gas market in 2024.

Thanks to factors including Saudi Arabia's voluntary oil production cuts and a drop in US commercial crude oil inventories, Brent crude prices rose to an average of US$94 per barrel this past September. However, concerns over worldwide oil demand growth and rising global inventories pushed prices down to US$78 in December. Heading into the second quarter of 2024, oil prices are riding an uptrend spurred on by rising tensions in the Middle East amid tightening supplies.

Oil prices may be surging, but natural gas prices have been on a sharp decline since November. This shift is particularly evident in mature markets, such as the Asia Pacific region, Europe and North America, which are experiencing reductions in gas demand as they sought alternatives like renewables and pursued improved energy efficiency.

Rework of a Pre-Existing Oil Well in Southwest Kansas

Rework of a Pre-Existing Oil Well in Southwest Kansas

VVC Exploration Corporation, dba VVC Resources, ("VVC") or (the "Company"), (TSX-V:VVC and OTCQC:VVCVF) announces the rework of a pre-existing oil well in southwest Kansas as a test for oil production in the region.

Initiation of Ardery Oil Well Rework
Building on its experience in natural resource management, especially recent work in Kansas, VVC has leveraged its subsurface mineral rights to examine the feasibility of oil production in an area where the Company is already involved in helium and natural gas production. Through geological due diligence, VVC has confirmed the potential for oil production within the area. This confirmation aligns with historic data indicating over 12 million barrels of oil production directly north of Ardery well site.

Is Now a Good Time to Invest in Oil Stocks?

Investing in oil stocks can be a lucrative endeavor, but determining the right time to enter a sector known for volatile swings can be tricky.

Over the past five years, the oil market’s inherent volatility has been on clear display. Major declines in consumption brought on by the COVID-19 lockdowns was followed by oil prices surging to US$120 per barrel in mid-2022, as the world economy began to recover and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine led to the consequent sanctions on Russian oil.

However, in the first half of 2023, fears of a global recession gave rise to bearish sentiment over much of the oil sector and pushed prices as low as US$67 during the period. Despite a spike above the US$91 level in Q3, oil prices trended downward in Q4 to dip below the US$70 mark even with conflict escalating in the Middle East.
