BowLeven Provides Bachuo-1 drilling Update, Offshore Cameroon

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/4/2006, Location: Africa

BowLeven has been decided to suspend activities at its Bachuo-1 exploration well in block MLHP-7, offshore cameroon. The Bachuo-1 well was spudded on October 29 2005 and was drilled to depth of 10,353 feet.The well targeted what was interpreted as a sequence of stacked and amalgamated debris flow reservoirs of Upper Isongo age.

These were predicted to contain gas and gas condensates. Gas was encountered while drilling in a number of zones and logging indicated about 300 feet of apparent gas bearing section with low permeabilities. A production test was condusted over one of the zones, but this failed to produce gas.

Following the results of this test, operations have been suspended. There will be a full review of the test and drilling results before any final decision is made to either abandon the well or re-enter it during a future drilling campaign.

Philip Rhind, BowLeven CEO, said " we have a busy schedule of 3D seismic aquisition beginning on blocks MLHP5 and 6 early this year, to be followed by a drilling program. We have secured a drilling rig for 4 well commencing in late 2006."
