FAR: SNE 5 Appraisal Well Spuds Offshore Senegal

FAR Limited announced Monday that the drilling of the SNE-5 appraisal well, offshore Senegal, began Jan. 21.

SNE-5, and the following well SNE-6, will evaluate the upper SNE reservoir units, specifically reservoir connectivity and deliverability, by conducting oil flow tests, including interference testing, FAR said in a company statement.

The two new wells follow the “highly successful” SNE-2, SNE-3, BEL-1 and SNE-4 appraisal drilling program completed on the SNE oil field in June 2016, FAR stated.

SNE-5 is located in the southern area of the SNE oil field approximately 1 mile southeast of SNE-3. SNE-6 is to be drilled immediately after the completion of SNE-5.

“SNE-5 is the first of two new wells that will further evaluate the potential of the SNE oil field, specifically to improve our understanding of the upper SNE reservoir units and their contribution to the conceptual development plans for this world class asset,” FAR Managing Director, Cath Norman, said.

“FAR and its Senegal joint venture partners are considering further optional exploration wells to follow the two firm wells…FAR has an extensive portfolio of undrilled prospects and together with our JV partners, we are keen to progress evaluation of the full Senegal PSC license area now that we have a commercially viable project at SNE,” Norman added.
