The firm said that it log evaluation and pressure data indicate that it has discovered approximately 42 feet of pay in a 72-foot oil column within the Gamba Formation and 123 feet of pay in stacked reservoirs in the Dentale Formation.

Harvest added that additional technical evaluation will be required to appraise the discovery, and it plans to carry out fluid sampling and a sidetrack well.
