MOUNTAIN VIEW PROSPECT, KERN COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
In January 2021, ARI gave to the operator the approval to initiate the permitting process for the first of the two wells defined by the last 3D seismic reprocessing and reinterpretation.
In February 2021, the Stenderup #66X-28 well production was stopped due to high water production. The bottom plug was leaking and a possible squeezing job proposed. Unfortunately, the high cost and low chance of success of this operation lead the partners to abandon this workover program.
In August 2021, the Stenderup #56X-28 well production became intermittent due to high pressure in the injection well.
