Wentworth Commences Kifaru-1 Drilling Operations

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/15/2015, Location: Africa

Wentworth announces that drilling operations have commenced on the Kifaru-1 exploration well in the Rovuma Onshore Concession in northern Mozambique. Wentworth has an 11.59% net interest in this well, which is being operated by Anadarko and drilled with the Helmerich & Payne rig #243.

The Kifaru-1 exploration well is targeting Miocene sands, similar to the reservoirs in the Mnazi Bay and Msimbati gas fields in southern Tanzania, as well as Oligocene and Cretaceous sands. The Kifaru-1 well has a planned total depth of 4,050 meters True Vertical Depth Sub Sea and, based on the current drilling program, is expected to take approximately 70 days to complete. The Company will provide an update after drilling operations have been completed.

Geoff Bury, Managing Director, commented:

"The Kifaru-1 exploration well is located just south of our discovered natural gas fields in the Mnazi Bay concession and adjacent to recent gas discoveries made offshore. The Kifaru-1 well is testing a large structure which, if successful, could lead to further exploration activities in both of Wentworth's blocks in the Rovuma Basin".
