2022-05-30 | TSXV: JEC | Press release
CALGARY, Alberta, May 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jura Energy Corporation (“Jura”) today announced the filing on SEDAR of its condensed interim consolidated financial statements as at March 31, 2022 and 2021 and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, and its management report for the first quarter of fiscal 2022.
Jura further announces that its share of average daily production during the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 was approximately 9.71 MMcf/d, compared to an average daily production of 13.75 MMcf/d during the comparative period. The decline in production is primarily due to a steady decline in production from the Zarghun South concession, which is attributed to a significant drop in flow pressures at the wellhead and excessive formation water production caused by a water breakthrough in the naturally fractured Dunghan Reservoir. Current daily production at Zarghun Sud is approximately 7.54 MMcf/d (~3.02 MMcf/d net to the Jura). While the joint venture partners for the Zarghun South lease are currently evaluating options to potentially stabilize production from the field, there is no certainty that production from Zarghun South will be stabilized in the near future.
Jura holds a 40% working interest in the Zarghun South lease through its wholly owned subsidiary Spud Energy Pty Limited, and the lease is operated by Mari Petroleum Company Limited.
