San Leon, Baker Hughes team up on Polish shale

UK-listed gas explorer San Leon and US oil services firm Baker Hughes have signed a letter of intent to jointly develop Poland's Skiekierki shale gas field, according to Reuters.

The companies will start gas production from four existing wells, with Baker Hughes providing the funding needed in cash or field services. Each of San Leon's four wells at the Siekierki field produced between 2–3 million cubic feet during testing.

Reuters noted that, last month, San Leon also carried out successful shale gas tests at a site near the northern city of Gdansk, reportedly making it the most commercially advanced shale project in the country.
