TE-6 Well Results 'Significantly Above Expectations'

Mediterranean focused upstream gas company Sound Energy revealed that results at the TE-6 well at the Tendrara license area, onshore Morocco, are already “significantly above company expectations”.

A significant stable flow rate has already been achieved at the well, according to the company, despite only having accessed 18 percent of the total reservoir so far and no stimulation having yet been performed.

As announced on June 6, the first Tendrara well (TE-6) was drilled to a measured vertical depth of 8,743 feet and encountered approximately 91 feet of net gas pay in the TAGI reservoir. After completing the initial perforation of 16 feet of the 91 feet of net pay (between 8,533 and 8,549 feet) the well achieved a stable flow rate of 1.36 million cubic feet per day.

"I am absolutely delighted to report what appears to be an early and potentially very material success at the first of our three strategic plays,” said James Parsons, Sound Energy's CEO, in a company statement.

“We eagerly await the post stimulation flow rate but I believe the early results of this first well already both prove a material commercial rate at Tendrara and provide significant early clues as to the regional potential of the Eastern Morocco TAGI reservoir."
