Tanzanian Success for BG Group, Ophir

change text size

Africa-focused Ophir Energy announced Wednesday that it has received successful results from the three-well appraisal program on the Jodari field, Block 1 Tanzania.

The company reported that its partner BG Group, which is operator Blocks 1, 3 and 4 in Tanzania, drilled three wells into the Jodari discovery at Jodari South-1, Jodari South ST-1 and Jodari North-1.

These wells demonstrated consistent, high reservoir quality across the Jodari field and confirmed the mean recoverable estimate of 3.4 trillion cubic feet of gas. The work also confirmed the feasibility of high-angle drilling, thereby reducing developing costs.

Ophir reported that interpretation of 3D seismic data recently acquired in the eastern area of Block 1 is continuing. It added that basin floor fans and amalgamated channel sequences of Tertiary age have been interpreted, with both being potentially analogous to those seen on the adjacent Mozambique side of the Rovuma Delta.

Ophir COE Nick Cooper commented in a company statement:

"The appraisal programme has significantly de-risked the Jodari field underlining its potential to anchor Tanzania's first multi-train LNG development. The Ophir-BG joint venture will now appraise the Mzia discovery and return to Jodari-1 to conduct Tanzania's first flow test. Thereafter the joint venture expects to return to high impact exploration drilling in Block 1 during Q1 2013".
