Tanzania: Ruvuma onshore wildcat has gas shows

By OGJ editors

Aminex PLC said it has deepened the Ntorya-1 exploratory well onshore in the Ruvuma basin of Tanzania to a total depth of 2,750 m to test a target identified on seismic.

The well encountered strong gas shows in a good quality reservoir sand at 2,660 m. Aminex will run logs below 2,500 m. Ntorya-1 is designed to test the high-quality Basal Tertiary and Upper Cretaceous sands previously encountered in the Likonde-1 well 14 km north. 

Participants in the deepening of the well below 2,500 m are Aminex’s Ndovu Resources Ltd. unit operator with 75% interest and Solo Oil PLC 25%.
