Bowleven begins drilling offshore Cameroon
West Africa-focused oil and gas exploration group Bowleven (BLVN) announced on Monday that drilling has commenced on the Sapele-1 sidetrack, Douala Basin, offshore Cameroon with the Noble Tommy Craighead jack-up rig.
Earlier this month, the AIM-listed company reported that it may have encountered a significant hydrocarbon column at its Sapele-1 exploration well, right before drilling was halted due to high pressure.
Sapele-1 reached a total depth of 4,733 metres, but operations were brought to a stop after a high pressure gas reservoir was encountered in the Cretaceous, the company said on Monday.
News Article (continued)
The principal objective of Sapele-1 is to appraise the Deep Omicron oil discovery encountered in the Sapele-1 exploration well. The well is to be drilled to an estimated vertical depth of circa 3,682 metres (4,761 metres measured depth) approximately two kilometres south east from the Deep Omicron oil discovery in the original vertical well. Drilling is expected to take approximately 40 to 50 days (excluding testing).
The Vantage Sapphire jack-up rig has now been contracted and consequently the Sapele-2 well is expected to spud mid-March 2011 as a material step-out down dip from the Sapele-1 location.
Further update announcements on drilling activities will be made as appropriate, it added.
