Vegas O&G is the operator of the East Ghazalat Concession located onshore in the Western Desert of Egypt. In September 2010, the exploratory well Sabbar-1 was drilled to a final total depth at 4,600ft. The primary objective of the Bahariya Formation was penetrated at a depth of 3,820ft with good hydrocarbon indications reported from sandstones recovered from cores. Analysis of wireline log data confirmed the presence of a 40ft interval of reservoir pay. A drillstem test was conducted over the interval and recovered 33°API of sweet crude at a steady rate of 500bopd on a 32/64 inch choke size under natural flow. The well was completed and temporarily suspended pending further studies.
Sabbar-1 is the fifth exploratory well and the third oil discovery drilled by Vegas in the East Ghazalat Concession during 2010 in partnership with TransGlobe Energy.
