24 June 2018, News Wires – West Africa-focused British independent oil and gas company, Savannah Petroleum plc, has announced that the third well in its current Niger drilling campaign, Kunama-1, has been spudded.
Kunama-1, which is located on the R3 portion of the R3/R4 PSC Area in the Agadem Basin, aims to evaluate potential oil pay in the Eocene Sokor Alternances.
Drilling will be carried out via the GW-215 Rig and is expected to take between 30 and 35 days, according to Savannah.
The company said it plans to log all prospective sections within the well, with further logging employed for hydrocarbon bearing sections.
“In the success case, the well will be suspended for future re-entry and further evaluation, which could include well testing and completion using a dedicated testing/workover rig,” Savannah said in a company statement.
The company revealed that it intends to announce the final well results after the end of drilling and logging operations.
