Harvest Natural Hits Oil Pay Offshore Gabon

Harvest Natural Resources found oil in wildcat well Dussafu Ruche Marin-1 (DRM-1) offshore Gabon, West Africa.

Drilled by the Sedneth 701 semisub in 380 feet (116 meters) of water, the well reached a vertical depth of 9,953 feet (3,034 meters) within the Upper Dentale formation. Log evaluation, pressure data and samples indicate the well discovered about 55 feet (17 meters) of pay in a 90 foot (27 meters) oil column within its primary objective, the Gamba formation.

The operator will deepen the well to test Middle and Lower Dentale exploration potential and then sidetrack to appraise the extent of the Gamba oil discovery. DRM-1 lies in the Dussafu Marin PSC, which Harvest operates, holding a 66.67% interest.
