DNO is looking forward to a second well in the Urema Graben, onshore Mozambique, after the first well failed to encounter any hydrocarbon. The company hopes it would crack the petroleum geology code in this underexplored formation with Ihaminga High 1, which it hopes to drill around February 2011. Ihaminga High 1 is located east of Chite 1, the first well by DNO (or any other operator for that matter), in this graben. Chite came up dry throughout its 3,050 metre depth. “Information from the two well is supposed to allow valuables assessment of the hydrocarbon prospectivity and potential of the block”, DNO says in a statement. The company is testing for source rocks, reservoir rocks and potential hydrocarbon trapping mechanisms.
