Bengal Provides Operations Update for Wareena Natural Gas Well Workover Program
Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - January 11, 2023) - Bengal Energy Ltd. (TSX: BNG) ("Bengal" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an operations update on its Wareena workover project.
Natural gas well testing operations commenced in December 2022 with both the Wareena 1 and Wareena 5 wells being reperforated and tested from the PC 20 zone. Due to surface facility fluid capacity limitations and time constraints, the Company was unable to complete testing operations.
Based on the salinity of produced water samples Bengal believes the water recovered from the wells was not formation water but completion fluids from prior work programs.
Bengal intends to complete testing as soon as possible subject to equipment availability, and the Company will provide updates and test information after the conclusion of testing operations.
Bengal Energy Ltd. is an international junior oil and gas exploration and production company with assets in Australia. The Company is committed to growing shareholder value through international exploration, production, and acquisitions. Bengal's common shares trade on the TSX under the symbol "BNG".
