Bowleven: Zingana Begins Flowing Hydrocarbons

Africa-focused oil and gas exploration group Bowleven plc announced Tuesday that the Zingana well, located on the Bomono Permit in Cameroon, has commenced flowing hydrocarbons following the installation of testing equipment.

An extended well testing program at Zingana is planned to determine the productivity and connectivity of the shallower reservoir units, which are intended to provide the basis for the initial supply of gas under a gas-to-power development scheme. Zingana is the first in a two well exploration program on the Bomono Permit. The other well, Moambe, indicated a maximum stabilized flow rate of 7.3 million cubic feet per day through a 48/64 choke with no signs of depletion, back in November.

Following an operating loss of $87.8 million earlier in the year, Bowleven pledged to carry out “significant” operational activity in 2016.
