"Drilling operations have concluded at the Awari exploration prospect in the previously untested northwest portion of Block 58. The well was deemed noncommercial," APA said.
At the Sapakara South-2 (SPS-2) appraisal well, the joint venture will start flow-test operations following drilling to the targeted Maastrichtian-Campanian formation. Results are expected to be available next month.
SPS-2 is located approximately 4.6 kilometers south of Sapakara South-1.
