Harvest to sidetrack two-zone presalt oil find off Gabon

Harvest Natural Resources Inc. will appraise a two-zone oil discovery in presalt formations at the Dussafu Tortue Marin-1 exploratory well on the Dussafu Marin PSC offshore Gabon.

Harvest, operator of the PSC with a 66.667% interest, drilled to 11,260 ft in the Dentale formation in 380 ft of water.

Log evaluation and pressure data indicate 42 ft of pay in a 72-ft oil column in the Gamba formation and 123 ft of pay in stacked reservoirs in the Dentale formation.

Harvest plans fluid sampling and a sidetrack to appraise the Dentale sands in a structurally superior position and the lateral extent of the Gamba reservoir with a provision for flow testing one or more of the subject pay intervals.
