Because of their slow nuclear fusion rates, dM stars undergo almost negligible changes in temperature or luminosity over time, making traditional age determination methods (such as isochronal fits) essentially impossible.
A 4-Point Isochronal test achieved stabilized flow rates of approximately 14 million cubic feet per day (~2,333 BOE per day) on a 48/64” choke, with associated condensate production increasing during testing.
