Offshore staff

WEST PERTH, Australia – Tangiers Petroleum says the jackup Ralph Coffman is mobilizing to drill the TAO-1 exploration well offshore Morocco in mid-late June.

Prospective resources could be 758 MMbbl.

Galp Energia operates the surrounding Tarfaya offshore block, with Tangiers and state-owned ONHYM each holding 25%.

TAO-1’s location is within a proven petroleum system, adjacent to the Cap Juby heavy-oil discovery. The well will target three stacked objectives.
