Sound Energy's Successful Operations Onshore Morocco
Moroccan and European focused upstream gas company, Sound Energy, reports successful operations at the Koba-1 well at Sidi Moktar, onshore Morocco.

Moroccan and European focused upstream gas company, Sound Energy, has reported successful operations at the Koba-1 well at Sidi Moktar, onshore Morocco.

The company has successfully re-entered, completed, perforated and flared gas at surface from the Argovian reservoir (historically the main producing reservoir in the Kechoula discovery), it revealed Wednesday.

A 16 foot interval was perforated in the Argovian reservoir at a measured depth of 4,612 feet where the static pressure was measured at 98 bar, confirming a producible gas accumulation, Sound said in a company statement.

The company has now temporarily suspended the well in preparation for a rigless extended well test. The Koba-1 well, drilled at the crest of the Kechoula discovery, is close to existing infrastructure and gas demand, including the large scale Moroccan state owned OCP Phosphate plant.

"We are delighted by this early success at the Kechoula discovery and look forward to both the extended well test and to unlocking the deeper, and much larger, pre-salt potential in the future,” James Parsons, Sound Energy's CEO, said in a company release.
