Aurelian Oil & Gas has discovered gas at the Krzesinki-1 exploration well in block 207, offshore Poland.

The well, which is located at the Siekierki tight gas field, encountered a 65m gas column and recovered a 175m core.

Krzesinki-1 lies 8km west of the Trzek-3 multi-frac horizontal well, which is currently in the build-up phase following the recent long-term flow test.

Wireline logging is complete and the well is being prepared for testing, which will be complete by the end of 2011.
