First Dussafu DTM-4H Production Well Completed

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Panoro Energy announced the successful completion of the DTM-4H well, the first of the phase 2 Tortue development wells, offshore Gabon.

The well was drilled with the Borr Norve jackup drilling rig in 116 meters water depth as a horizontal production well in the Gamba reservoir. A long horizontal section of good quality oil saturated Gamba sands was drilled and completed and the subsea tree installed ready for hook up early next year.

The rig has now moved to the DTM-5H well location, the second of the four phase 2 production wells, and the DTM-5H well was recently spud.

First production from the phase 2 Tortue wells is planned for March 2020 with all four phase 2 wells expected to be online by June 2020.
