Rabat – Morocco’s Office of Hydrocarbons and Mining (ONHYM) announced Monday positive test results for the SAH-W1 well in the western-central area of the Sebou Permit, onshore Morocco.
Well flows were 140,000 cubic meters per day, and production will start at the end of June this year, the Rabat-based ONYM said in a statement.
The well is located within the western-central area of the Sebou Permit, about 3.2 kms to the south-west of the main gas gathering station. The well was drilled to a TD of 1,263 meters MD in June 2014, with gas shows encountered at different levels within the target Guebbas sands.
As is normal practice, Circle Oil will produce from the lowermost Guebbas zone followed by the Main Guebbas zone sequentially from the bottom up, where the highest pressure is present.
The lowermost Guebbas zone has 3.6 metres of net pay and the test over this interval flowed at a sustained rate of 4.94 MMscf/d on a 24/64″ choke during a period of 5 hours.
“We are delighted with the results of the SAH-W1 well test. This was the first well of our third drilling campaign, drilled with our partner ONHYM in the Sebou permit and is coupled with our drilling programme in the Lalla Mimouna permit. We believe that this well has the potential to add significant volumes to our reserves for gas production and at rates not subject to price fluctuation due to fixed price contracts”, Steve Jenkins, Chairman of Circle Oil, said.
