Heritage Oil Spuds Buffalo-1 Exploration Well in Uganda

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/1/2008, Location: Africa

Heritage Oil Limited, an independent upstream exploration and production company, announces that it has commenced drilling the Buffalo-1 exploration well in Block 1, Uganda.

Drilling Activity - Block 1, Uganda
The Buffalo-1 exploration well is being drilled to an anticipated depth of approximately 600 metres and is expected to take between two and three weeks to drill and complete.

The Warthog-1 discovery well in Block 1, which encountered a net hydrocarbon column of 46 metres in a gross interval of 150 metres, has lowered the exploration risk of Buffalo, Giraffe and other prospects in Block 1 significantly.

Warthog-1 was the first well drilled in a three well exploration programme in Block 1. It lies on a structural trend that can be traced from the Kasamene-1 discovery well, in neighbouring Block 2, northeast through the Giraffe and Buffalo prospects in Block 1. All of these prospects are characterised by seismic amplitude anomalies that appear to indicate the presence of hydrocarbons.

Drilling Activity - Block 3A, Uganda
The Kingfisher-3 appraisal well, which was spudded on 26 September 2008, is currently operating at target depth of 3,200 metres measured depth (total vertical depth 2,619 metres). A series of wireline logs are being run. Subsequent to operations being completed on Kingfisher-3, it is planned to drill the Kingfisher-3A sidetrack to an anticipated measured depth of approximately 2,860 metres, which is expected to be completed by late January or early February 2009. The well and sidetrack are being drilled to evaluate the southern limits of the oil field and to gather additional reservoir data in preparation for field development.
