Madalena Provides Operations Update
TSXV Trading Symbol: MVN
CALGARY, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Madalena Ventures Inc. (the "Company" or "Madalena" (TSX VENTURE: MVN) is pleased to provide an update of its operations in both Western Canada and Internationally.
Western Canada Operations Update - Greater Paddle River Core Area
Horizontal Resource Play #1 - Ostracod light oilOn October 15, 2012 the Company placed its most recent Ostracod horizontal oil well (Madalena 100% W.I.) on production in the Paddle River area. The IP30 rate was 307 boe/d (65% oil & ngl). The well continues to flow without the assistance of pumping equipment at rates of approximately 270 boe/d after 3 months. Madalena plans to spud a 100% working interest offsetting horizontal well within the next 2 weeks and may subsequently drill an additional 100% working interest horizontal location prior to spring break-up. Horizontal Resource Play #2 - Stacked Mannville Channel Trend In December 2012, the Company drilled a 3038 meter horizontal Notikewin well (Madalena 100% W.I.) in the Niton area. The well has a horizontal trajectory of approximately 1100 meters which was multi-stage fraced in 13 stages. The well was flowed to clean-up and initially tested over a 9 day period. During this time, gas rates increased steadily to 5.5 mmcf/d with an expected 28 bbls/mmcf of liquids once tied-in and on production. Throughout the clean-up test, 100% of the 689 m3 of load fluid was recovered. Average production rates over the final 24 hours of the test were 5.5 mmcf/d and flowing pressures remained relatively stable at approximately 3000 kPa. The plan is for this horizontal to be tied-in and on production around mid-February. The flow-back information disclosed above should be considered preliminary and is not necessarily indicative of the long-term performance of the well. Horizontal Resource Play #3 - Nordegg oil & liquids-rich gas In December 2012 Madalena also spudded a horizontal Nordegg well (Madalena 100% W.I.) in the Wildwood area. The well has been drilled to a total depth of approximately 3000 meters with approximately 1100 meters of horizontal trajectory. The Company is currently planning a multi-stage frac operation to be undertaken later in January. With success, it is expected that the well will be tied-in and equipped such that gas and liquids (estimated at over 100 bbls/mmcf) production would commence in early March. With the focus on production growth from its three key resource plays in the Greater Paddle River Area, Madalena continues to move forward on its plan to drill, multi-stage frac and tie-in four to five horizontal wells prior to spring break-up.
