Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/25/2008, Location: Africa

Aminex announced that two further wells in its current programme have been spudded over the last three days. In Tanzania the Kiliwani North-1 well (“KN-1”) commenced drilling on Saturday 23 February from Songo-Songo Island offshore Tanzania using the Caroil-6 land rig. The well is located roughly 2 km from the producing Songo-Songo gas field in the southern part of the island and will be drilled as a vertical exploration well to a depth of approximately 2,000 metres. KN-1 has been designed firstly to intersect a possible new oil play for the Nyuni block in Palaeocene sands and secondly to investigate the Lower Cretaceous (Neocomian) sand stones which are the reservoir at the Songo-Songo producing gas field.

Moving the rig from Kiliwani Island to Songo-Songo Island and rig-up has been achieved well ahead of the provisionally estimated time and experience gained from the last well drilled will be put to good use during the drilling of KN-1.
