Hardman Spuds Uganda Appraisal Well
Hardman Resources says the Nzizi-1 well has been spudded in Exploration Area 2 in Uganda, using the Eagle Drill-1 rig.
The well has been drilled to a depth of 358 meters in the 9 7/8 inch section and casing has been run. As at midnight 5 November, the operation was preparing to set the blow out preventer (BOP), following which the well will be drilled ahead to total depth of 1,030 meters.
Nzizi-1 will test a structure up-dip of the recent Mputa discovery. The well is designed to evaluate the equivalent oil bearing reservoirs intersected in the Mputa structure. Nzizi-1 is situated approximately 5.5 kilometers to the southwest of Mputa-2 appraisal well.
Partners in Block 2 are Hardman Petroljeum Africa Pty Ltd as operator with 50% and Tullow Oil with the remaining 50%.
