Curzon Energy has confirmed that workover and clean-out operations on all five existing wells at the Coos Bay coalbed methane field in Oregon have been completed.
It said outcomes so far from the workover operations completely correlate with the technical analysis carried out by the company in advance of the programme.
It said workover operations had removed sand and coal fines in each of the five wellbores and it remained on track to deliver first gas in the second quarter.
Managing director Stephen Schoepfer said: 'We are delighted that operations continue to advance rapidly on our phase I development plan at Coos Bay where results thus far fall in line with our technical assumptions and we remain on track to deliver first gas in Q2 2018.
'Curzon is now entering into a busy period of testing of our first five wells and I look forward to updating the market in due course.'
