Sound Energy Starts Drilling Second Gas Well in Eastern Morocco
Lying only 1.6 kilometers away from its first TE-6 gas well in Tendrara, Sound Energy announced that works have started on the second TE-7 well with aim of prospecting gas volumes, Pro Active Investors said on its website.
The second well will go down 3,440 meters and drilling is likely to take 54 days, while completion and simulation might take a month with clean up and initial well testing requiring a further 10 days, the company said.
Earlier in August, Sound Energy, which is a member of London’s junior market, said in a statement that the TE-6 discovery took place in a 2,665 meter well.
The gas discovery was described as “significant” as it flows at a highly commercial rate of 28 meters of net gas pay, said the company.
Sound’s partners on Tendrara include the American oilfield services giant Schlumberger and Morocco’s Oil & Gas Investment Fund. The explorer also has assets in Italy.
