Touchstone Exploration Inc (LON:TXP, TSE:TXP) highlighted a degree of strength in terms of production as new wells drilled during 2019 continue to boost oil sales.

Production presently (based on seven preceding days in March) stands at approximately 2,358 bopd.

Touchstone highlighted that the eleven wells drilled in 2018 have accounted for some 993 bopd of current production.

“The team continues to optimize the wells drilled in the 2018 program which has resulted in significant changes to our stabilized base production rates,” said Paul Baay, Touchstone chief executive.

“Several of the wells are pool extensions and as such have shown much higher pressures than we have encountered in the past, which has also resulted in higher initial production rates.

“These wells have also verified a number of new geological concepts that will further expand our development drilling inventory.”

The company also looked ahead to new drilling plans, noting that seven new drilling locations within the Ortoire exploration property have received environmental certification.
