  • Knox Dolomite

    Formation: Knox Dolomite
    Formation Depth: 1388′
    Prior Production: 0 BOPD
    After Stimulation: 33 BOPD
    After one month: 20 BOPD

    A well in Adair County, Kentucky, was stimulated with a 12 foot GasGun. This well was completed open hole in the Knox dolomite formation at a depth of 1388 feet. The well was drilled in 1994 and originally produced 90 BOPD, but then went to water. The operator did a cement squeeze to shut off the water, but was unable to get the well to produce again. They decided to try a GasGun to help them break past the suspected cement invasion into the formation. Immediately after the GasGun treatment the well went from 0 to 33 BOPD. After one month, production leveled off at 20 BOPD.

  • O'Hara Limestone

    Formation: O’Hara Limestone
    Formation Depth: 1716′
    Prior Production: New well
    (No Natural Production)
    After Stimulation: 24 BOPD
    After Acid Treatment: 48 BOPD

    A new well in McClean County, Kentucky, was stimulated with a 4 foot GasGun. This well is located near older producing wells. The well was swabbed down prior to the stimulation, and there was no natural production. This well is a cased hole completion in the O’Hara formation at a depth of 1716 feet. After the GasGun stimulation, the well was making 24 BOPD. A few days later the well was acidized and production increased to 48 BOPD.

  • Bethel Sandstone

    Formation: Bethel Sandstone
    Formation Depth: 1861′
    Prior Production: None (New well)
    After Stimulation: 20 BOPD
    After 2 months: 5 BOPD

    A new well in Muhlenburg County, Kentucky, was stimulated with a 6 foot GasGun. This well is a cased hole completion in the Bethel formation at a depth of 1861 feet. The well was perforated and acidized with no production realized. After the GasGun stimulation, the well was making 20 BOPD. Two months later, production was 5 BOPD.

  • Benoist Sandstone

    Formation: Benoist Sandstone
    Formation Depth: 1766′
    Prior Production: None (New well)
    After Stimulation: 30 BOPD

    A new well in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, was stimulated with a 6 foot GasGun. This well is a cased hole completion in the Benoist formation at a depth of 1766 feet. After 4 weeks production was recorded at 30 BOPD.

  • Rosiclare Sandstone

    Formation: Rosiclare Sandstone
    Formation Depth: 1790′
    Prior Production: None (New well)
    After Stimulation: Flowed at surface
    Sustained: 30 BOPD

    A new well in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, was stimulated with a 4 foot GasGun. This well is a cased hole completion in the Rosiclare formation at a depth of 1790 feet. After stimulation the well began to flow at the surface. After 4 weeks the well was making 20 BOPD, and after 6 weeks it was making 30 BOPD.

  • Corniferous Dolomite

    Formation: Corniferous Dolomite
    Formation Depth: 1183′
    Prior Production: 5 MCF/D
    After Stimulation: 60 MCF/D
    Sustained: 30 MCF/D

    A well in Wolfe County, Kentucky, was stimulated with a 10 foot GasGun. This well is a cased hole completion in the Corniferous formation at a depth of 1183 feet and was suspected to have cement invasion. Production increased from 5 MCF/D to 60 MCF/D for 8 months. After 9 months, production leveled off at 30 MCF/D.

  • Cypress Sandstone

    Formation: Cypress Sandstone
    Formation Depth: 3 wells at 2300′
    Prior Production: 1-3 BOPD
    After Stimulation: 12-21 BOPD
    After 2 weeks: 2-4 BOPD

    Three oil wells in Henderson County, Kentucky, were stimulated with GasGun tools. These wells are cased hole completions in the Cypress formation at depths of approximately 2300 feet. Oil production in the first well increased from 1.5 to 12 BOPD, but fell back to 2 BOPD. The second well increased from 1 to 14 BOPD, and after two weeks leveled out at 4 BOPD. The third well increased from 3 to 21 BOPD, but also made 100 BWPD. Since the operator did not have a good way to dispose of the water, a packer was set, and the well was recompleted in the Hardinsburg. The well was perforated and stimulated with the GasGun. Production began at 20 BOPD and after three weeks leveled off at 10 BOPD.
