Painted Pony Energy LTD releases results on liquids-rich wells


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Painted Pony Energy LTD. announced the results of two Lower Montney wells drilled on the northern edge of the South Townsend block today.

Preliminary results indicated that production levels were higher than Painted Pony management’s Townsend type curve and included higher liquid yields compared to previous wells in the Townsend block.

Painted Pony wrote that they were encouraged by the results and are anticipating a re-direction in portions of drilling activity within the existing 2018 development budget to better capitalize on the well’s results.
