Golden Gate Petroleum (ASX: GGP) shares will rise today after it increased oil and gas production from two of its Permian Project wells in Texas and has brought its SRH-5H horizontal well back on production after a reconfigured compressor was installed.
It noted that production at SRH-5H is running above previous levels.
The SRH-3 and SRH-4 wells produced at an average rate of 30.9 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) and 46.3boe per day during the two week period starting 1 September 2013 following the completion of works.
This compares with average daily production ranging from 18.5boe to 19.1boe for SRH-3 and 22.6boe and 28.5bpe for SRH-4 between 16 July 2013 and 15 August 2013.
Total average daily production for the latest two week period is 138boe.
While the higher production rates at SRH-5H have not been reflected in the latest report, this along with improvements at the Hensarling-1 well in Louisiana are expected to provide a substantial improvement in production in the next two week period starting 16 September.
