Royal Helium has resumed its resource and reservoir testing programme at the remaining untested helium zones of interest up hole from the Regolith discovery zone in the Climax-3 well.

Confirming the news on Tuesday (6th July), the company said intervals tested are in the Wymark zone at approximately 1,800 meters deep. The programme is expected to take 10-14 days after which the service rig and completions team will move to Climax-2.
