  1. Drilling program commences offshore Tanzania

    Royal Dutch Shell PLC and its partners Pavilion Energy Pte. Ltd. and Ophir Energy PLC have commenced a two-well drilling program in Blocks 1 and 4 offshore Tanzania in the Mafia Deep basin. The Noble Globe Trotter 2 is drilling both wells in 2,300 m of water. The joint venture will invest close to $80 million into the drilling campaign, Shell said in its press release. Shell became the operator of the two blocks in Febraury 2016 after its combination with BG Group PLC ( OGJ Online, Apr. 8, 2015 ). The wells will meet the remaining exploration requirements per the licenses issued by the Tanzanian Ministry of Energy Minerals (MEM). The development of Blocks 1 and 4 is part of the Tanzania LNG project , which is a combined onshore LNG plant currently in the pre- front-end engineering and design stage. Ophir was awarded 100% interest in Block 1 in 2005, and in Blocks 3 and 4 in 2006. The operator has drilled 11 exploration wells and 5 appraisal wells on a mix of Tertiary and Creataceous plays since 2010. Block 1 is home to the Mzia and Jodari discoveries ( OGJ Online, Aug. 27, 2014 , May 1, 2013 ). Blocks 1 and 4 contain 17 tcf of gross contingent resources. Ophir farmed out 60% of Blocks 1 and 4 to BG, now Shell, in 2010 and sold a further 20% to Pavilion Energy in 2014 for $1.3 billion. Ophir retains 20% interest in Blocks 1 and 4.
