Tullow Oil Provides Drilling Update on Kasamene-1 Exploration well, Block 2, Uganda

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/6/2008, Location: Africa

The Kasamene-1 exploration well, drilled in the Butiaba region of Uganda Block 2, has encountered over 31 metres of net oil pay and at least 6 metres of net gas pay. The well was drilled some 1.5km from the crest of the structure to a total depth of 957 metres and has been successfully logged. Downhole pressure testing and sampling has confirmed the presence of dry gas and moveable 30-33 degree API oil. Reservoir quality for both zones is excellent. The most likely gas column is over 35 metres and the most likely oil column is over 75 metres. Further potential exists up-dip and an appraisal well will be required to test the vertical extent of the oil legs and gas cap. The well is currently being sidetracked and core will be taken throughout the reservoir section for analysis.

Kasamene-1 was drilled 15km to the north-west of the Ngege-1 discovery and is the second successful test of the Victoria Nile delta play fairway within the Lake Albert Rift Basin. The well results have confirmed the presence of excellent quality thick reservoir and seal units within the centre of the basin, and de-risks several adjacent prospects in Blocks 1 and 2 that will be drilled as part of the current 9 well Butiaba drilling campaign.

On completion of operations at Kasamene-1, the rig will move 10 kilometres to the East and drill the Kigogole-1 prospect starting in mid August.
