Ntorya-2 Well 'Substantially Exceeds Expectations'

Ntorya-2 Well 'Substantially Exceeds Expectations'
The overall results of the Ntorya-2 appraisal well 'substantially exceed Aminex's expectations'.

The overall results of the Ntorya-2 appraisal well have ‘substantially exceeded Aminex’s expectations’, according to a statement from the company’s CEO Jay Bhattacherjee.

Ntorya-2 was drilled in the onshore Ruvuma Basin of southern Tanzania, on the Mtwara License which is governed by the Ruvuma Production Sharing Agreement.

Limited test flow rates with a 40/64” choke produced ‘dry, high quality gas’ at an average stable rate of 17 million cubic feet per day, or 2,833 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

“Now we have the potential for a commercial development project in the Ruvuma Basin,” Jay Bhattacherjee said.

“Ntorya-2 is currently being suspended for future production…the Ntorya-2 test clearly supports our belief that there is a considerable gas basin to be exploited in our Ruvuma onshore acreage which we are looking forward to developing,” he added.

The well was drilled to a final total vertical depth of 9,169 feet. At 8,507 feet, the well encountered a gross gas-bearing reservoir unit of approximately 167 feet.
