Algeria’s state-owned Sonatrach and its partners completed its drilling campaign in Hassi Bir Rekaiz with the Bou Goufa-2 (BOG-2) well that flowed 2,406 b/d of oil and 2.9 MMcfd of associated gas. BOG-2 was drilled to TD 4,064 m at the end of April. Drill stem tests showed flow rates from the Triassic Argilo Greseux Inferieur (TAGI) formation.
Hassi Bir Rekaiz is onshore in the southeastern part of Algeria. It covers an area of 2,686 sq km and includes Blocks 443a, 424a, 414ext, and 415ext. PTTEP is the operator during the exploration period with 24.5% interest. Its joint venture partners are Sonatrach with 51% interest and CNOOC Ltd. with 24.5% interest. The proposal for development is under way and will submitted to the Algerian government in early 2017, PTTEP said.
