Ophir Provides Operational Update on Tanzania Recent Drilling

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/21/2014, Location: Africa

Ophir Energy plc announces an operational update on recent drilling in Tanzania. The Tende-1 well was drilled in East Pande by the Deepsea Metro I drillship in a water depth of 781m to a total depth of 4,153m targeting the Cretaceous-aged Tende prospect. Although gas traces were encountered in the upper strata of the primary objective, wireline logs confirmed that no moveable hydrocarbons were present in this prospect.

In the secondary Tikiti objective, the Tende-1 well encountered a gas bearing sandstone. The Company will evaluate the wider impact of this find as it integrates the well results into its understanding of the remaining prospects in the East Pande block.

Following the Tende-1 well, the Deepsea Metro I drillship moved to Block 7 where the Mkuki-1 well was drilled to a total depth of 3,204m. The well targeted a Tertiary-aged stratigraphic prospect located in water depths of 1,648m and encountered a high quality sandstone sequence, but no hydrocarbons were present.
