Gulfsands Sees Good Result at Moroccan Well

North Africa and Syria-focused independent oil firm Gulfsands Petroleum reported Monday that its Dardara Southeast 1 well (DRC-1) in northern Morocco has flowed at 7.1 million cubic feet of gas per day following well perforating, completion and clean-up operations.

The well, which is located on the Rharb Centre Permit, achieved the 7.1 mmcfd flow rate over a six-hour period and on a 32/64-inch choke with a stable well-head pressure of 1,230 pounds per square inch.

Gulfsands said the well will now be suspended as a future gas production well. The COFOR rig used to drill DRC-1 will now move to the Douar Ouled Balkair drilling location, where the DOB-1 gas well will spud later this month. Operations on the DOB-1 well are expected to take 28 days in total.

Gulfsands CEO Mahdi Sajjad commented in a company statement:

"We are very pleased with the flow result from well DRC-1, the performance of which is consistent with the apparent excellent quality of the reservoir observed from drilling and wire line log information. We look forward to receiving the results from our next exploration well in the Rharb Centre Permit over the next few weeks."
