About Sprigg-1

The Sprigg-1 prospect is located in the central eastern sector of PEL 514 and is 2.8 miles (4.5 kilometers) west of Acrasia oil field.

The exploration was drilled to a total depth of 8,104 feet (2,470 meters) to test the oil potential of the Tinchoo Formation up dip and 787 feet (240 meters) west south west of the Reg Sprigg North-1 well.
