Anglo African Spuds Congo Well

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Anglo African Oil & Gas reported that the TLP-103C has spud. The well is located on the Tilapia field in the Republic of Congo. The TLP-103C will be drilled to a total depth of 2,700 meters and is expected to take 64 days to complete, including testing.

The well is targeting three horizons: the current producing horizon of R1/R2; an appraisal of the Mengo horizon and a deeper exploration prospect in the Djeno horizon from which the adjacent Minsala field produces at a rate of 5,000 bpd.  If the well performs in accordance with the company’s geological model, TLP-103C can be extended to target the Vandji horizon.

It is being drilled from a newly constructed pad at the Tilapia site and will deviate to these offshore targets.  In line with the recommendations of internal and external engineering experts, Anglo African has put in place engineering enhancements to mitigate risks caused by shallow unstable formations.
