Imperial Helium (IHC CN)C: Smaller resources but good well test results could suggest a commercial development – At the IHC-Steveville-2 well, a 12 metre zone was tested at a rate of ~2 mmcf/d. This zone is an interval equivalent to the blow-out zone in the offsetting 13-22 well. While the headline flow rate might appear low, it is in reality a good result that suggests that the well can be brought into production at 5-6 mmcf/d at leas
