Gulf of Guinea Energy Spuds Uquo Appraisal/Development Well

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/12/2008, Location: Africa

Gulf of Guinea Energy Limited announced the spudding of the first of two back to back appraisal/development wells in the Uquo field, within the Eastern Niger Delta, onshore Nigeria. Uquo-5 well will be drilled to a depth of 8,500 feet by Henan Petroleum Company Nigeria, using the HPEB119 drilling rig. The rig will then move to drill the Uquo-6 well.

It is anticipated that the wells will be retained as producers for the Uquo development with first production expected in 2009. The Uquo field is planned to produce through ExxonMobil’s Qua Iboe terminal some 8 klm to the south.

The discovery well Uquo -1 was drilled in 1958 by Shell and tested both oil and gas in more than nine separate reservoir intervals. Three further wells have been drilled (Uquo 2 – 4) which have discovered three separate hydrocarbon structures, within which a total of 15 hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir accumulations exist. Of these, ten have been evaluated as gas bearing, two are proven oil bearing formations and a further three have been evaluated as being probably oil bearing. GOGE-Frontier acquired 233 sq klm of 3D seismic in 2006-2007 covering the entire license area.
