Aminex PLC, an independent oil company listed on the main market of the London and Irish Stock Exchanges with exploration and development assets in the emerging hydrocarbon province of East Africa, announces a further operational update on drilling of the Ntorya-1 exploration well in the Ruvuma Basin onshore in Tanzania.

On the 10 February 2012 it was announced that the well would be deepened to test an additional target identified on the seismic data at a depth of approximately 2,750 metres. The well has now been drilled to 2,750 metres, and prior to reaching that depth encountered strong gas shows in a good quality reservoir sand at a depth of approximately 2,660 metres. A logging programme will commence shortly to evaluate the new section drilled below 2,500 metres and a further update will be provided after the logging programme has been completed.

The Ntorya-1 well is designed to test the high quality Basal Tertiary and Upper Cretaceous sands previously encountered in the Likonde-1 well, 14 kilometres to the north. Participants in the deepening of the well below 2,500 metres are: Ndovu Resources Ltd (Aminex) 75% (operator); and Solo Oil plc 25%.
