TMK Energy Limited (ASX: TMK) 2 mins read

MK Energy Limited (ASX: TMK) (“TMK” or the “Company”) today announced the final commissioning of its maiden Pilot Well Program at the Gurvantes XXXV Coal Seam Gas (CSG) Project in the South Gobi Basin of Mongolia. This milestone follows the successful installation of downhole pumps and drive heads, and the completion of all surface facilities and associated civil works.

Since the company's last update on June 28, 2023, significant progress has been made in the final phases of the project. The three pilot production wells are currently in a short commissioning phase, after which extended production testing will commence, as scheduled, in mid-July.

The upcoming production test will involve pumping water from the coals to reduce hydrostatic pressure within a 60-70 metre production interval comprised of upper seams containing primarily methane gas. Lowering the hydrostatic pressure to below the critical desorption pressure allows for the desorption of the coal seam gas, which then flows up the well. This gas will be measured at the surface through a metering skid and initially flared off, with potential future use for electricity production in collaboration with MAK.

While the wells are initially expected to yield high water levels and low methane gas levels, the production test is predicted to lead to increasing gas rates and decreasing water rates over time.

Mr. Brendan Stats, CEO of TMK Energy, expressed his satisfaction with the progress:

“With the final commissioning now underway, the commencement of the extended production testing from our maiden Pilot Well Program at the Gurvantes XXXV Coal Seam Gas project is due to officially commence within the next week.

The last couple of weeks have seen another key deliverable with the successful installation of the pumps and the drive heads as well as initial testing of the pumps confirming that all three wells are now operational and ready for start-up.

Upon final commissioning and testing of the SCADA systems and other ancillary equipment, the final stage will be the careful and measured start-up of the pumps to commence the dewatering process which we expect will be a 2-3 month process, after which we hope and expect to see initial gas breakthrough which is expected to build over the subsequent months.”

TMK Energy remains committed to providing further updates as the Pilot Well Program progresses.
