In a Nov. 28 research note, analyst Bill Newman reported that Pulse Oil Corp. (PUL:TSX.V) yielded "favorable results" from completion of phase two of the enhanced oil recovery (EOR) reservoir modeling of its two Bigoray Nisku reefs in central Alberta. The final, phase three, solvent and injection development study is now underway and should be finished by year-end 2018.
In the note, Newman described each of the three stages of the EOR modeling project.
Phase one involved analyzing and interpreting the logs and petrophysical data from 15 wells drilled in the two Nisku pools and then conducting the same with 10 cores also from the two pools. Those studies "confirmed excellent reservoir properties," Newman pointed out. Specifically, they showed the Nisku D and Nisku E reservoirs have "a trimodal porosity system, with matrix, vugular and fracture porosity that compares favorably with offsetting pools, where EOR implementation has resulted in recovery factors as high as 85% of petroleum initially in place."
Phase two consisted of constructing a reservoir model that incorporated the petrological and petrophysical data collected in phase one along with the company's three-dimensional (3D) seismic data. "This is the first time that 3D seismic data has been applied to the evaluation of these pools, which helped to better define the pool boundaries and could increase the interpretation of the structure closure," noted Newman.
Phase three entails simulating various solvent and injection scenarios to determine the best type of solvent for injection and the ideal locations for the production and injection wells. These determinations should ultimately help maximize oil recovery from the Nisku D and E reservoirs.
In other news, Pulse received approval from the Alberta Energy Regulator for transfer of the remaining ownership of the Bigoray Nisku D and E pools. Now owning 100% of both, the company plans to reactivate them soon.
Mackie has a Buy recommendation and a $0.50 per share target price on Pulse, whose stock is currently trading at around $0.16 per share.[NLINSERT]
