Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) noted that the La-106 well was spudded on February 6, 2010 at its Logbaba gas and condensate project in Douala, Cameroon.
La-106 is the second well to be drilled by VOG at Logbaba and will twin Well La-101, which was drilled by Elf SEREPCA in 1954. The well will be drilled from the same well-pad as La-105 and, following the results of the passive seismic survey announced on February 4, 2010, will be deviated to a bottom-hole location around 390 meters northwest of La-101 to access one of the most prospective areas of the existing discovery.
The proposed total depth is approximately 8,700 feet (measured depth) and drilling is anticipated to take around 60 days. While La-106 is being drilled, testing of the gas-bearing zones of La-105 will be undertaken and this testing is expected to commence in February.
The La-105 open-hole log data and the passive seismic survey results are expected to justify significant additional proved and probable reserves to the 104 billion cubic feet for the field estimated by RPS Energy in 2008. Logbaba remains the only onshore discovery in Cameroon and is ideally positioned to supply natural gas to industrial customers in Douala, of which around half the existing market has already signed gas off-take contracts and letters of intent at a price of $16 per thousand cubic feet of gas.
