Dover is Drilling Ahead at East Wadi Araba Well

Mogul Energy International has been notified by project operator Dover Investments that drilling on the EWA 4X well at the East Wadi Araba (EWA) Concession is progressing as planned. The well is being drilled from an onshore location and is being deviated to test the offshore Raha formation and a large light oil target in the Nubian Sandstone reservoir in the Gulf of Suez that forms the significant reservoir in several major oilfields. The well is currently drilling at 2200 feet at an angle of 41 degrees. The current drilling plan anticipates that 13 3/8" casing will be set in the next few days and then Dover will continue drilling the well which will deviate up to an angle of 65 degerres from the vertical. Dover anticipates that the well will reach target depth, which is expected to be below 7,100 ft (drilled depth), or 4,180 ft vertical depth in about 20 days time.
