Tunisia: Bargou block exploratory well spuds

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 4 – Cooper Energy Ltd. has spud the Menzel Horr-1 exploratory well on the Bargou block onshore Tunisia.

The prospect is a thrust-related, dip-closed structure that has the potential for hydrocarbons at multiple reservoir horizons, said Jacka Resources Ltd., which is earning a 15% equity interest in the block via a farm-out from Cooper Energy.

The well is expected to encounter the key target formations 10-25 days after spud.  The Hammamet West-3 appraisal well is to be drilled on the block in mid-2011.
