HOUSTON, June 13
– Log evaluation, pressure data, and samples indicate that the Dussafu Ruche Marin-1 wildcat off Gabon has discovered 55 ft of pay in a 90-ft oil column in its primary objective, the presalt Gamba formation, said Harvest Natural Resources Inc., Houston.

The well, in 380 ft of water on the Dussafu Marine PSC, has reached 9,953 ft true vertical depth in Upper Dentale. It is to be deepened to test Middle and Lower Dentale exploratory potential. It will then be sidetracked to appraise the Gamba discovery.

Harvest operates the 680,000-acre block with 66.667% interest.
