Harvest lines up further well on Dussafu block offshore Gabon

Offshore staff

HOUSTONHarvest Natural Resources has issued an update on its exploration and development activities offshore Gabon.

During 3Q, the company continued evaluations based on 3D seismic data acquired in 2013 and processed last year.

A geophysical site survey was completed in the same period over multiple potential well locations in the Dussafu block. Results provided information on the seabed and shallow geological conditions for planned drilling: subsequently, Harvest tendered for a jackup to drill a well during 2Q 2016.

The company is looking to farm down part of its 66.667% interest in the block and drill an exploration well on a prospect identified on 3D seismic, with multiple pay zones anticipated in the Gamba and Dentale formations.

These are oil-bearing sands which delivered four prior discoveries on the Dussafu block, and extend into the adjacent Etame block.
