Renovering af Ritchie Waterflood Unit – opdateret d.19-4-20

19. april 2020: Renovering af Ritchie Waterflood Unit – opdateret d.19-4-20


Hi All,

See attached video – Ritchie #10. We got the electric cable repaired and got the last 2 wells going(#9,#10). #10 is pumping fine but #9 would not pump, so we are going to have to pull #9 and #17 and see what is wrong with the down hole pumps. With #7, #10, and #15 going we are making one bbl/day oil and 5 bbls/day water. I was hoping we would make some gas but so far we are not making any. We will start working on the injection wells next week.



Happy Easter All

WE made some good progress last week. We got 90% of our plumbing completed around the tank battery area. The electricians found the broken electric cable 4’ deep. We had to dig a big hole to find it. Five foot of cable will have to be replaced. They had to order a repair kit and it will be here next week so we hope to have the wiring fixed and the last two wells up and pumping next week. We have looked at the 4 injection wells and know what parts we need but we have not done any work on that part of the system yet. I want to get all the producing wells up and pumping before we tackle the injection well part of the system. Still have not been able to do the dozer work to fix the location from flooding but we are supposed to be dry next week so I am hopeful to get that finished. We will start the monthly JIBs effective April 1, 2020 so you will get the first paperwork for your people mid-June.



Hi All,

Not much to report as we have been blessed aging with a bunch of rain. The location is standing in water as our dozer guy has not been able to dirt work behind the tank battery area to fix the flooding problem. We did get the piping fixed around well #7 and got it pumping. We now have well #15 and well #7 pumping. Between these two wells we are making about ½ bbl/day of oil and about 5 bbls of water. We had the #17 well pumping but it quit making any fluid so we must have a down hole problem. The electrical boys and the roustabout crew are ready to come if we can ever dry out a little. The Ritchie #1 well is still making about 1/3 bbl/day of oil and about 3 bbls of water. It is holding in there with about 20 mcf/day gas.


29-3-20 - Arbejdet er påbegyndt

Hi All

I will send you a weekly update every Saturday and let you know how we are coming along so you can keep your investors up to speed.

We didn’t get much work done this week mostly just lining everybody out. We had the electrical boys out and showed them all the issues. They were able to repair the electrical panel for the #7 well so it is ready to run when we get the well head piping repaired. They are coming back next week with some special equipment to find the main electric line problem. This line feeds the power to the #9 and #10 wells. Hopefully that doesn’t turn into a major ordeal.

We had the fiberglass repair guys out. There are three places that the fiberglass piping is broken and needs to be fixed including the well head piping around the #7 well head. They plan on coming Monday or Tuesday to make the repairs.

I lined out the roustabout crew yesterday on all the work we have to do around the tank battery area. They will be back next Wednesday to start all their work. I estimate it will take them about a week to get everything done.

Also, had the dozer guy out. He will fix the area behind the tank battery so it won’t flood the whole area every times it rains.

Lastly, I am a little concerned about what the Coronavirus might do to us. They are getting more and more adamant about people not leaving their houses unless it is an emergency.



Gary har modtaget den først sum penge som vi har sendt over til ham, han forventer at kunne start først næste uge, området har fået en del regn, som vi kender alt for god til, men moder natur styr vi ikke. Så planen er at påbegynde arbejdet FÅ kilderne i produktion samt lavet alt andet ude på felterne, når vi så når dertil så skal vi kigge godt på olieprisen som p.t ligger på ca. 24 USD for en tønde, hvid dette niveau fortsætter vil en mulighed være at lukke kilderne midlertidigt og vente på bedre priser, ingen grund til at sælge vores varer for ingen penge. mere om dette når kilderne er i produktion, og vi ved hvordan markedets er på dette tidspunk, tingene ændre sig lynhurtigt i disse tider.



Vi har d.d. sendt knap $35.000.- over til G&F Oil inc. som er blevet indbetalt af medejerne i projektet, dette betyder at renoveringsarbejdet kan påbegyndes i denne uge, og så regner vi med de sidste kunder for indbetalt snarest muligt samt indsendt deres dokumenter. Der i sidste uge sendt en påmindelse ud vedr. dette.
