Tanzania appraisal success

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Latest drilling on the Pweza-2 discovery offshore Tanzania has confirmed resource estimates, according to partner Ophir Energy.

Appraisal drilling was completed on Pweza-2 in Block 4, 2km to the south of the Pweza-1 discovery, using the DeepSea Metro 1 drillship.

The well intersected 20m of net pay with excellent reservoir quality, which was confirmed to be in pressure communication with Pweza-1. This result confirmed a 1.7Tcf gross recoverable resource estimates for the Pweza field.

The Deepsea Metro I has now moved to drill the Pweza-3 appraisal well, about 5km to the west of Pweza-2.

The Pweza-3 well will include the collection of cores and a drill stem test.

Ophir holds 40% interest of Blocks 1, 3 and 4, operated by BG Group, which holds 60%.

Earlier this month Ophir said the preferred site for Tanzania’s first multi-train LNG facility could be announced later this year.

Discussions have been held with the Tanzanian government and state-oil firm Tanzania Petroleum Development Corp, as well as neighboring Block 2 co-venturers—Statoil and ExxonMobil—who would be involved in jointly developing an LNG facility.
