Offshore Senegal appraisal well reaches planned depth

Offshore staff

MELBOURNE, Australia – FAR says the SNE-2 appraisal well that began drilling early last month on the Senegal Sangomar Deep Offshore block has reached the planned TD of 2,825 m (9,268 ft).

Coring and wire line logging operations have been completed, and preliminary data has confirmed the SNE-1 discovery. Preparations for drillstem tests are currently in progress.

The Polarcus Adira has demobilized after completing acquisition of a seismic survey over the Sangomar and Rufisque blocks offshore Senegal.

Final processed products from the survey are due to be delivered next summer.

Cairn Energy operates the blocks, in partnership with ConocoPhillips, FAR, and Petrosen.
