Donga-3, drilled in October 2005, recovered 23 barrels of light oil and 39 barrels of formation water from the Donga sandstone on test. Near the end of an extended production test earlier this year, Donga-3 was flowing about 50 barrels of fluid per day with 25% oil cut and is interpreted to have intersected the oil-water contact of the field.
The Donga-4 appraisal well location is offset about 1 kilometer southwest of Donga-3 and Donga-5 is offset about 0.75 kilometers west of Donga-3. The wells are interpreted to intersect the Donga sandstone 10 to 15 meters up dip from Donga-3
Bow Energy's recent assessment of the field suggests it has the potential to contain 2.2 to 5 million barrels of oil with oil recovery contingent on adequate water drive.
The interests in ATP 805P are Bow Energy as operator with 85% and Victoria Petroleum with 15%.
