Roc Oil Suspends Sidetrack Offshore Mauritania
Roc Oil (Mauritania) Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of ROC, advises that as at midnight (local time) on 3 May 2008, the Banda NW ST-1 sidetrack well had been suspended.
The results of the wireline logging, Modular Dynamic Tester (MDT) pressure testing and sampling indicate that Banda NW ST-1 intersected an 85 meter gross gas column, with 15 meters (18%) net gas pay and a 15 meter gross oil column, with 10 meters net oil pay (67%). The fluid contacts were as expected and the well is interpreted to be in communication with the original Banda-1 discovery well drilled in 2002, approximately 2 kilometers to the east. The Banda Field is in approximately 300 meters of water and spans PSC Area A and PSC Area B.
The Atwood Hunter will commence with the planned well intervention work on the Chinguetti Field, once it has completed the move from Banda NW ST-1.
