Maxwell Resources Inc., an oil and gas company located in Dallas, TX, has announced that it has followed through on their commitment to bring first of 3 gas wells online.

Construction of the rework project on SGG #1 well in Houston County, Texas began as forecasted on 1 October 2015. With a coordinated effort of field personal, engineering consultants, and Maxwell Management team, the SGG gas well was connected to the gas buyer transmission line at noon on 13 October 2015.

Upon uncapping the well, SGG #1 showed positive indications of being a very strong well. The initial pressure was extremely high while the crew worked around the clock to bring this pressure down to the levels required for connecting into the transmission pipeline. The team was successful and levels of flow are currently strong and sustainable.

“In the 24-hours prior to this release, the well flow resulted in sales of 883 million ft3 natural gas on a 12/64 in. choke at 1500 psi flowing tubing pressure. Today, the well is on a 16/24 in choke 1350 psi flowing tubing pressure, resulting in an instantaneous sales rate of 782 million ft3/d of natural gas. While the final stabilised rate is unknown, the well is flowing into an 800 psi sales line without compression assistance. Our engineering consultants along with the Maxwell Resources team are excited by these initial findings and will continue to consistently monitor and adjust flow conditions in an effort to maximise the production and efficiency of the well.” Mike Edwards, CEO.

The Maxwell field personal has now relocated to the Temple #1 well to focus their efforts and attention to bring this well along with the Hinchen #2 online. Per the planned construction schedule, the additional 2 wells will be online by early November 2015.

Maxwell continues its relentless pursuit of success by locating and developing oil and gas properties to build shareholder value.
