Analysis of the wireline and drill data indicates that the well has not encountered any significant hydrocarbons. However, there were indications of gas throughout the approximately 1,150m thickcarbonate primary target.
On 25 September 2006 preparations were underway to plug and abandon the well. On completion of Flamant-1 the Atwood Hunter will drill the Aigrette-1 exploration well in Block 7.
