Consequently the Company plans to remove the bridge plug and re-connect the four original zones when the well is re-completed with the jet pump artificial lift system,’ Synergia says. Says two producing C-77H re-frac zone producing on plateau at 150,000 standard cubic feet per day. ‘The company anticipates that production from these two zones will be enhanced by the jet pump installation and this enhanced production will be further increased by the contribution of the re-connected original four zones in the C-77H well,’ it adds.
