VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Delta Oil and Gas (DLTA:OTCBB) is pleased to report that the recently drilled and completed Donner #4 gas well, located in Newton County, Texas, has started producing natural gas and condensate and the first sales from this well have taken place. Delta and its partner, Hillcrest Resources, Ltd. (HRH:CA), recently drilled the well to a total depth of 7,510 feet and it was completed in the 7,400 Struma sand. The Struma sand is a known gas producer and has produced prolifically elsewhere in the Field.
The Donner #4 well was opened to sales flowing gas at a restricted rate of approximately 385,000 cubic feet per day on a severely restricted choke of 5/64th of an inch. The choke will be increased over the coming days as the contract Operator settles in on an optimum gas rate, expected to be in excess of 500,000 cubic feet per day.
“With its first gas sales being reported, the Donner #4 well is the third successful well in our Newton County Prospect”, stated Christopher Paton-Gay, CEO. Delta has been able to continue to exploit this Prospect through non-dilutive financing and with the success of this latest well, we will see an immediate increase in cash flow and reserve value.”
