La Française de l’Énergie (LFDE) (Paris:LFDE) has announced the CBR-1 well, currently being drilled at Lachambre in the Moselle region in France, has successfully reached its first target located at 1080 m depth: coal seam Gamma (15), 11 m true vertical thickness.

The core analysis have demonstrated an excellent gas content, above 10 m3/t. Petrographic analysis of the cores has confirmed the presence of a well-developed natural fractures network, a typical feature of the coal seams in the Lorraine basin.

The well has also encountered a six thick coal seam located at 978 m true vertical depth (coal seam 11), which could be incorporated into a future development.

La Française de l’Energie is the operator and sole holder of the exclusive exploration permit Bleue Lorraine, on which the CBR-1 well is located.
