Circle Oil will complete the exploration well that has encountered a new gas zone in the Sebou Permit, onshore Morocco.
CGD-12 encountered 9.7metres of total net gas pay in a number of levels within the Hoot and Guebbas sands.
Located within the western central area of the Permit, about 4km to the south of the main gas gathering station, the well was drilled to a total depth of 1,232metres.
The Irish operator says it is pleased to have another successful discovery in the Sebou permit and have proven additional reserves for potential gas production. “This is the second well of a six well programme to be drilled with our partner ONHYM in the Sebou permit and is coupled with another six well programme in the Lalla Mimouna permit.”, the company notes in a statement.
The next well on the rig schedule is the KSR-12 well, which will be third in the Sebou programme.
Circle Oil has assets in the Rharb Basin in Morocco, the Ras Marmour permit in southern Tunisia, the Mahdia permit offshore Tunisia and the Zeit Bay area of Egypt.
