Oil Search reports that, the Taza 2 well was at a total depth of 4,098 metres and drilling ahead in a 6-1/8” hole. Drilling progress for the week was 38 metres.

During the week, the wireline logging programme was completed over the open-hole interval and processing and evaluation of these logs is now underway. Based on encouraging shows seen at the bottom of the hole, it was decided to recommence drilling ahead to the base of the Shiranish Formation, estimated to be at a depth of approximately 4,250 metres. The forward plan is then to acquire wireline logs and sidewall cores over the new section, prior to determining zones for potential flow testing.

Taza 2 is located 10 kilometres north-west of Taza 1 and is designed to appraise the hydrocarbon-bearing intervals discovered by Taza 1 (Jeribe/Dhiban and Euphrates/Kirkuk Formations), as well as explore deeper Tertiary and Cretaceous targets including the Shiranish Formation.
