Africa Oil Corp has revealed that the Erut-1 well, located in Kenya’s Block 13T, has been spudded. Located on a large structural feature in the northern part of the South Lokichar basin, the well is intended as a follow up to the successful Etom-2 well which discovered 334 feet of net pay.The well is the first in a firm four well program, with the potential for an additional four contingent follow on wells, which is expected to continue through the first half of 2017, Africa Oil Corp stated.
“We are excited to get back to drilling and particularly interested in the first two wells in the program which will test exploration prospects in the northern portion of the Lokichar Basin opened up by the Etom discovery,” Africa Oil CEO Keith Hill said.
“These wells, and the follow up appraisal wells at Amosing and Ngamia, are important steps in moving the Lokichar development project forward,” he added.(source: rigzone)
