Circle Hits Gas Onshore Morocco

Circle Oil reported Wednesday that its SAH-W1 well on the Sebou Permit, onshore Morocco, has made a gas discovery.

Circle said that the well – located in the western central area of the Sebou Permit – encountered gas shows at three levels within the target Guebbas sands after being drilled to a target depth of 4,144 feet. Wireline logging has confirmed the presence of three gas-bearing zones with subsequent pressure testing confirming permeable high-pressure reservoirs.

The net pay from the wireline log analysis is 19.5 feet in the Top Guebbas, 19.5 feet in the main target Intra Guebbas and 10 feet in the lower part of the Intra Guebbas.

Circle now plans to produce the three zones sequentially from the bottom up – where the highest pressure is present.

Circle CEO Professor Chris Green commented in a company statement:

"We are delighted to add another successful discovery to our Sebou gas portfolio. This is the first well of a six-well program to be drilled with our partner ONHYM in the Sebou permit and is coupled with another six-well program in the Lalla Mimouna permit."
