Elixir Energy coal bed methane pilot project in Mongolia on track; first well complete and a second on its way www.proactiveinvestors.com.au

Elixir Energy Ltd (ASX:EXR) says its coal bed methane (CBM) extended pilot project in Mongolia, part of the 100%-owned Nomgon-9 CBM production sharing contract, is underway with the first well drilled and completed.
The well in the country's south was drilled to a total depth of 488 metres in 11 days, which is a record time for Elixir, and the exercise was conducted safely and to budget.
Roughly 55 metres of coal were logged over the primary target '100 series coal' and a perforated liner installed over this section.
Second pilot well
The rig is now moving to the location for the second and final pilot well, Nomgon-8, which is due to spud later this week.
Following the completion of Nomgon-8, down-hole pumps will be installed in both wells together with production skids, pipework and a flare.
The project is on track to start pumping operations at the two pilot wells in around a month.
Baseline environmental monitoring
The company has also initiated a baseline environmental monitoring program in the immediate region surrounding the pilot area, which is over and above the relevant regulatory requirements.
This is the first time such a program has been undertaken in the Gobi region.
Elixir managing director Neil Young said: “We are pleased to report that our pilot production program is on track with the successful drilling and completion of Nomgon-9.
“I congratulate our drilling contractor Major Drilling and our own on-site team who have worked tirelessly to deliver a quick, safe and fit-for-purpose pilot well.
“We look forward to moving into the pilot production phase, and although the timing and quantums of water and gas flows from the wells is uncertain in such a new area, we could see meaningful gas breakthroughs by as early as Christmas.”
