Significant Increase in Prospective Resources

Elixir Energy Limited (Elixir or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on further laboratory results recently received in connection with its Daydream-2 appraisal well in its 100% owned Grandis Gas Project (ATP 2044), located in the Taroom Trough of the Bowen Basin, Queensland.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Desorption analysis conducted on coal cuttings from Daydream-2 now completed
  • Very high gas contents measured – prior expectations greatly exceeded
  • Resultant significant increase in the prospective resources in ATP 2044 to 3.6 Tcf (2U)
  • Imminent program aims to start converting these prospective to contingent resources
  • Expected low CO2 confirmed

During the drilling of the primary unconventional targets at Daydream-2, Elixir acquired coal desorption samples from drill cuttings. The cuttings were placed in traditional coal bed methane (CBM) desorption tubes and analysed for gas content. The work was undertaken by one of the global leaders in coal analysis, ALS.

This innovative work has identified a new and significant gas resource for the Company. This is gas adsorbed to the coals - in addition to the prospective resources already recognised by Elixir, which previously were solely in the coal fracture system.

The most representative samples averaged 23 cubic metres/tonne (Raw as received) for Q1 + Q2 + Q3, which translates to 34 cubic metres/tonne (Dry Ash Free).

This adsorbed gas component of the coal is now considered by Elixir to have significantly enhanced the prospectivity of Grandis, because of:

1. The exceptional gas contents still adsorbed to the coals;

2. The entire Permian section appears to be gas saturated without significant water; and

3. The natural permeability of the adjacent sandstones means there is a direct conduit from these gassy coals to the sandstone reservoirs.

The prospective resources of gas in the Permian coals in ATP 2044 has now been re-assessed to include both an adsorbed and fractured component, and is estimated as follows:

*added arithmetically

This prospective coal resource, combined with the permeable and tight sandstones recently logged in Daydream-2, will be the key targets of the upcoming stimulation and testing program, which will commence in mid-April 2025.

The current timing for the wellbore clean out of Daydream-2 will be within the next 2 weeks and Diagnostic Fracture Integrity Tests (DFITs) will commence in March. The stimulation and flow testing stages will follow and are planned to be completed in the second quarter.

Successfully flowing gas from the coals will lead to the commencement of the conversion of these very material prospective resources to contingent resources. In addition, the Company aims to re- assess the previously independently certified contingent resources in the sandstones after that flow test stage – with a view to also substantially increasing them.

Further work is ongoing on the samples in areas such as gas composition and saturation. However the preliminary average chromatographic gas breakdown confirms the expected low carbon dioxide content. This has been measured as around 1% - a level which requires no processing out before sales into pipelines, etc).

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.
