Small Quantities of Gas Encountered at Tevet-2 Offshore Mauritania
In the PSC Area B offshore Mauritania, the Stena Tay is performing wireline logging operations of the Cretaceous exploration objective of the Tevét-2 sidetrack (ST1).
A preliminary evaluation of wireline log data, including fluid sampling and downhole pressure measurements, has established that the exploration well intersected a gross oil interval of approximately 8 meters in good quality sandstones.
While the hydrocarbon column is small and may not prove to be material, the result is encouraging for future Cretaceous exploration targets in Woodside-operated Mauritanian acreage.
Once logging is completed the well will be plugged and abandoned as planned and the Stena Tay will move to the Labeidna-1 well location.
