Aminex Announces Gas Discovery in Tanzania

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/17/2008, Location: Africa

Aminex announced a successful result from the drilling of Kiliwani North -1 (“KN-1”), offshore Tanzania in the Nyuni/East Songo-Songo licence area. KN-1 has intersected a substantial gas column in Lower Cretaceous sandstones, the same reservoir that produces gas commercially in the neighbouring Songo-Songo gas field. Electric logging has been completed and formation pressures taken which confirm the presence of gas over a gross interval of approximately sixty metres. This vertical well was drilled to a depth of 2030 metres (6,687 ft), ahead of schedule.

KN-1 will now be completed as a gas production well pending hook-up for production and a test will be conducted to determine flow capacity and reservoir properties. Further appraisal drilling will be required to define the extent of this discovery.

Preliminary evaluation indicates a gas-water contact approximately 30 metres deeper than at the adjacent Songo-Songo Gas field. This is a positive outcome for the potential of other exploration prospects and leads in the Nyuni licence area. This deeper gas-water contact demonstrates that the KN-1 discovery is in a separate structure to the Songo-Songo field and this further enhances the prospectivity of the remaining leads and prospects within the Nyuni licence.

KN-1 also encountered minor oil shows in the Neocomian reservoir section, as well as confirming the presence of potential reservoirs in the Tertiary section at an earlier stage in the well.

The Nyuni/East Songo-Songo licence is only one component of Aminex’s acreage portfolio in East Africa, which includes the highly prospective Ruvuma Basin area of Tanzania as well as large acreage positions in Madagascar and Kenya, on all of which new seismic has now been acquired. In addition, Aminex is currently participating in the Malak-1 exploration well in the West esh el Mellahah concession in Egypt, which spudded on 25 February and is drilling ahead on schedule.
