Tanzania discovery for Statoil

Norway’s Statoil announced that a fifth natural gas discovery in Block 2 offshore Tanzania has opened up new play in the region.

The Mronge-1 discovery, drilled in 2500m water depth by the Discoverer Americas drillship, 20km north of the Zafarani discovery, contains about 2-3Tcf natural gas in place at two separate levels.

Mronge-1 is the Statoil/ExxonMobil partnership’s fifth discovery in Block 2. The first three natural gas discoveries were made during the first drilling phase, with Tangawizi-1, Zafarani-1 and Lavani-1, and a deeper discovery in a separate reservoir in Lavani-2.
