Aminex Hits Gas at Tanzania Well

Africa focused oil and gas exploration and production company Aminex plc revealed Monday that the Ntorya-2 appraisal well in Tanzania has encountered a gross gas bearing reservoir unit of approximately 167 feet.

Preparations are currently underway for a comprehensive well testing program and the company expects to have results of the flow-testing and ongoing petrophysical analysis by late February.

The well was spudded in the onshore Ruvuma Basin Dec. 21, 2016 in order to appraise the Ntorya Area. Ntorya-1 had a net pay of 11.5 feet and flow-tested at 20 million cubic feet per day, with 139 barrels of associated condensate.

The Ntorya field is approximately 25 miles from the Madimba gas processing plant, which receives gas into the National Gas Pipeline system. Depending on the results of the well test, the company intends to apply for a 25-year development license over the Ntorya Appraisal Area.

“We are delighted with the progress of the Ntorya-2 appraisal well, which is ahead of our expectations,” Jay Bhattacherjee, CEO of Aminex, said.

“The reservoir is both thick and high quality. Aminex looks forward to providing the results of the flowtesting which will enable the joint venture to consider its options for development of the Ntorya field,” he added.
