Heritage Oil Announces Successful Warthog-1 Exploration Well In Block 1 Uganda

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/21/2008, Location: Africa

Heritage Oil Limited, an independent upstream exploration and production company, announces a significant new discovery with Warthog-1, the first exploration well that the Company has drilled in Block 1, Uganda.

Warthog Discovery - Block 1, Uganda
Drilling operations on Warthog-1 commenced on 27 September 2008 and the well was drilled to a total depth of 911 meters. The well encountered a gross hydrocarbon-bearing interval of approximately 150 meters in thickness, with net hydrocarbon pay of 46 meters. Wireline logging and formation pressure measurements indicate 31 meters of net oil pay in the principal oil-bearing reservoir section, overlain by 15 meters of additional net hydrocarbon pay comprising, most probably, volatile oil, condensate and wet gas.

In addition to the oil discovered in the principal oil-bearing reservoir section, there is further potential upside for liquid hydrocarbons in the overlying reservoir section and elevates further upside potential from the adjacent Warthog North prospect.

Warthog-1 is the first well in a three well exploration programme to be drilled in Block 1. It lies on a structural trend that can be traced from the Kasamene-1 discovery well, in neighboring Block 2, continuing northeast through the Giraffe and Buffalo prospects in Block 1. All these structures are characterized by seismic amplitude anomalies at reservoir level that appear to directly indicate the presence of hydrocarbons. The successful results of the Warthog-1 discovery further emphasizes the highly prospective nature of the Buffalo and Giraffe prospects.

There are a further 15 similarly encouraging amplitude anomalies mapped within Block 1 from over 600 kilometers of seismic data acquired in the license during the past 18 months, and all represent additional prospects and leads which constitute additional multiple drilling targets.

The Warthog-1 well is being suspended as a potential future production well. The rig will move to drill Buffalo-1 to an anticipated depth of approximately 600 metres and is expected to commence drilling in mid-November. The movement of the rig is expected to take up to 21 days.

Both the Buffalo and Giraffe prospects were assessed independently by RPS Energy, as at 30 September 2007, to have mean gross un-risked prospective resources of 420 and 89 million barrels of oil respectively.
