Bowleven has commenced drilling on the Sapele-1 sidetrack well with the Noble Tommy Craighead jackup in the Douala Basin offshore Cameroon. The objective of the well is to appraise the Deep Omicron oil discovery encountered in the Sapele-1 exploration well.
The well is estimated to reach a vertical depth of about 12,080 feet (3,682 meters) approximately 1 mile (2 kilometers) southeast from the Deep Omicron oil discovery in the original vertical well. Drilling should take nearly 40 to 50 days, excluding testing. Bowleven has also contracted the Sapphire Driller jackup to drill the Sapele-2 well, which is expected to spud mid-March 2011 as a material step-out down dip from the Sapele-1 location.
