Imperial Helium Sees First Well Completed At Steveville

Imperial Helium (TSXV: IHC) has completed drilling its first helium well. Located on the firms flagship Steveville property, the hole has reportedly been drilled, logged, and cased by the company as it works towards production on the property.

Drilling of the hole reportedly went as planned, with the hole cresting the Steveville structure as initially planned. Drilled to a total depth of 2,167.46 metres, preliminary data has indicated that the well has intersected a 152 metre section of the Beaverhill Lake Formation.

Furthermore, preliminary data collected on the well is reportedly in-line with initial expectations held by the company, with data being consistent with the historical Steveville blowout that the company was targeting. Production testing of the well is now to commence to determine the potential that the well holds.

“The preliminary results of this first appraisal well are tremendously encouraging and support management’s estimate of at least 1.1Bcf of recoverable helium from the Steveville structure. Shortly, we will commence production testing of IHC-Steveville-1 to appraise the reservoir quality and the deliverability potential last demonstrated by the Steveville blow-out. “

David Johnson, CEO

The company has also indicated that it is to begin drilling the second well in the near term, with the hole to offset the historic Steveville blowout.

Imperial Helium last traded at $0.32 on the TSX Venture.
