July 22, 2013

SOCO Intertnational spud LDKEM-1, an exploration well on the Lideka East Marine prospect. The well will test the potential of a post-salt structure of the Sendji formation in the Lower Congo Basin, off Pointe Noire, Congo, in the Marine XI license. This location is updip from the 2009 Lideka Marine-1 well, which had oil shows. The prospect is a four-way, dip closure at the well location. Additionally, LDKEM-1 will test the reservoir potential of the lower Tchala formation. The lower part of the Tchala Formation is in a structural closure with a fault seal to the north and east. The well is expected to take about 30-35 days to reach its target depth.
