Kinetiko Energy completes commissioning in preparation for gas-to-CNG production well testing at Sou


Kinetiko Energy Ltd (ASX:KKO) has upgraded, tested and commissioned surface and sub-surface equipment on Well KA-03PTR and completed upgrades to the access road and terminal landing in preparation for production from the Amersfoort gas-to-CNG pilot project in South Africa.

Upgrades to the access road of about 2.5 kilometres and the trailer and terminal landing at the well site have been completed. 

These upgrades were considered necessary in anticipation of pilot gas production next quarter, and to ensure safe access and provide suitable terminal landing space for projected operations by potential CNG off-takers.

Well KA-03PTR has now commenced cleanup flow in preparation for production well testing.

Testing and commissioning program

Since completing the workover program on Well KA-03PTR, Afro Energy commenced a testing and commissioning program in conjunction with Franklin Electrical and Endress Hauser of all newly installed and upgraded surface and sub-surface equipment. 

This included calibrating and function testing of metering and recording equipment on the existing flow skid, downhole pump equipment and level probes. 

Afro Energy subsequently commenced with controlled well flow clean-up periods to clean and condition the well in anticipation of full choke testing of initial gas flow rates, average stabilized gas flow rates, methane content, casing pressure, and other measures. 

This testing is planned for immediate commencement with results to be announced. 

Securing gas offtake 

Afro Energy is in advanced negotiations with potential gas off-takers for small and intermittent gas production from Well KA-03PTR and possibly well KA-03PT2, where they will purchase gas at an on-site transfer point, compress the gas to a required pressure utilising their own compression equipment and feed gas to their CNG trailers for transportation to existing gas-based customers in the Johannesburg and Witbank regions. 

The company intends to apply for full production rights over ER56 as soon as possible after the commencement of production of well-KA 03PTR and seek certification of maiden gas reserves.
