Aminex has commenced drilling the Ntorya 2 appraisal well in the Rovuma Basin, Tanzania.   The well is being drilled to an estimated total depth of 2860 metres and is targeting the same channel complex as Ntorya-1 but further updip of the reservoir.  The well location is a 1,500-metre step-out from the Company’s Ntorya-1 discovery which flow-tested gas at 20 mmcf/d, with 139 barrels of associated condensate, from a 3.5-metre sand interval.    

The Company has a 75% operating interest in the well and initial results are expected early next year.

“We are delighted to have commenced the drilling of the Ntorya 2 appraisal well in the Ruvuma Basin. Aminex is one of the few oil and gas companies actively drilling in East Africa and this a very exciting time for the Company.”(Source: Aminex)
