Global Stocks Fall as Oil Hits 3-Year High and China's Energy Crunch Fans Fears of Inflation
NEW YORK , Oct. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The ongoing energy crisis in China has resulted in a manufacturing crunch as factories in the country grapple with the ongoing energy shortages. Global stocks have also fallen as the energy shortage threatens the supply of goods from China . Meanwhile, these shortages coupled with the ongoing natural gas squeeze have pushed Brent's crude oil prices to a three year high of more than $80 a barrel. As the energy crisis spreads, the demand for natural gas is expected to surge upwards this winter. This growing demand for natural gas will generate free cash flow for companies like Decklar Resources, Inc. (TSXV: DKL) (OTC: DKLRF), Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CEI), Cardinal Energy Ltd. (TSX: CJ), Marathon Oil (NYSE: MRO), and Cenovus Energy Inc. (TSX: CVE) (NYSE: CVE).
Oil exploration and production company Decklar Resources, Inc. (TSXV: DKL) (OTC: DKLRF) has continued to make progress on the well re-entry at the Oza Oil Field in Nigeria , which is nearing commercial production. The Oza Oil Field has significant export and production capacity thanks to operating processing facilities and infrastructure already in place, which is expected to allow for the immediate export and sale of crude oil from Oza.
On September 1st , Decklar announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Decklar Petroleum Limited successfully reentered the Oza Oil Field, removing the old tubing and completing equipment removal, maintenance, and isolation of deeper zones from the target reservoirs.
Decklar also installed a new wellhead, prepared the site, and installed production testing equipment for the completion of the target zones in the Oza-1 well and completed 116-hour testing of the L2.6 sand, which yielded a stabilized flow rate of 2,463 barrels of oil per day of 22-degree API sweet crude oil.
Then on September 30th , Decklar announced the perforation and initial flow testing on the other two target zones of the Oza-1 well: L2.2 and L2.4. The L2.2 sand resulted in 1,361 barrels of oil per day, which will likely be developed by drilling a horizontal well from the Oza-1 well pad immediately after completing activities on the current Oza-1 re-entry. The L2.4 sand resulted in 10.3 million square feet of natural gas, which may present an opportunity to participate in Nigeria's transformational gas utilization initiatives.
In the coming weeks, the Oza-1 well will then be completed using a single-tubing completion string to produce from the L2.6 sand and immediately put on commercial production. The completion will be designed with sliding sleeve technology that will also allow production from both the L2.2 and L2.4 zones in the future.
"We are very pleased with these initial test results from the first of the three target zones of the Oza-1 well re-entry," Duncan Blount , CEO of Decklar Resources "After such promising well deliverability and commercial flow rates, we now look forward to completing the remaining Oza-1 well testing activities and commencing commercial production."
Before releasing the Oza-1 well update, Decklar Resources announced the closing of a unit offering for approximately C$5 million to raise funds for general corporate purposes. The funds will also go into developing the Oza Oil field and exploring additional oil and gas development opportunities in Nigeria .
