Fremont Petroleum Corporation Ltd (ASX: FPL) ('Fremont' or 'the Company') is pleased to advise that stimulation operations on the Amerigo Vespucci #1 well have now been completed and the stimulation equipment and crews have demobilised.
In total, five frac stages were completed over differing depths between 5,100 feet to 5,500 feet in the Niobrara formation.
The Company is now preparing the well for flow-back operations which are scheduled to commence this week.
