Maha Energy announce spud of Tie-5


Maha Energy AB (publ) (“Maha” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the spud of the Tie-5 Agua Grande (AG) horizontal well in Brazil. The Tie-5 well was spudded on time as per planned schedule at 0900 (GMT-3) on January 25th on the Tie field in Brazil. The well is designed as a horizontal well and will drain the northern part of the Tie field at the Agua Grande level.

As communicated earlier, the Tie-4 well was completed as a vertical producer and tested 4,695 BOEPD on an Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP). The Tie-4 well is now producing through the Tie Production Facility.

Jonas Lindvall, CEO of Maha Energy comments: ”In light of the very positive well performance of Tie-4, we are very excited to start drilling the Tie-5 well.  Our drilling team in Brazil have significantly improved on the Tie-4 well design and I am confident that we will be able to land the well horizontally in the AG.”

Significant changes have been made to the Tie-5 well design to address the drilling issues encountered whilst trying to land the previous Tie-4 well. Changes include, deepening of the 9-5/8” casing shoe, and drilling the troublesome Lower Candeias in a shorter section with an inclination below 60 degrees. The Company has successfully drilled multiple wells through the Lower Candeias at angles below 60 degrees. A new geomechanical study was  carried out with data acquired in Tie-4, and its findings and recommendations have been incorporated into the well program. Tie-5 will also be completed using an ESP.

1   Barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") conversion ratio of 6,000 scf: 1 bbl is used.

The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact persons set out below, at 12:00 CET on 26 January 2022.

Maha Energy: Borrningen av Tie-5 slutförd efter att 240 meter produktiv reservoar genomborrats28.5.2022 23:30:00 CEST | Pressemelding

Maha Energy AB (publ) ("Maha" eller "Bolaget") meddelar att horisontal-borrningen av Tie-5 i Brasilien nu är klar. Slutligt djup för sex tums hålet nåddes den 3 maj och ett 4-1/2 tums produktionsrör har nu sänkts ner och säkrats i brunnen. Längden på horisontalhålet reducerades i slutskedet på grund av försämrade borrhålsförhållanden. Totalt penetrerades 240 meter av produktiv Agua Grande (AG) reservoar med hjälp av nedsänkta elektriska loggningsverktyg. Den horisontella sektionen kommer nu att stimuleras och saneras innan den sätts i produktion. Borrningen av Tie-5 nådde ett djup om 2 548 meter den 3 maj 2022. Totalt har 240 meter (netto) av AG-sand exponerats och ett 4-1/2 tums perforerat produktionsrör har nu sänkts och säkrats i hålet. Det kan jämföras med 14 meter (netto) AG-reservoar som exponerades i den vertikala brunnen Tie-4. Innan Tie-5 sätts i produktion kommer brunnen att genomgå en rad stimulerings- och saneringsoperationer för att rensa horisontalhålet från borrslam. Jon
