Aminex's Test of Kiliwani North-1 Yields 40MM Cubic Feet/Day

Aminex PLC, has completed a successful well test at the Kiliwani North-1 well in Tanzania.

Initial results from the test have established:

  • A strong stabilized flow of gas at a rate of 40 million cubic feet/day, equivalent to 6,700 barrels of oil per day, through a 72/64ths" choke
  • Strong flowing wellhead pressures
  • Condensate of one barrel per million cubic feet
  • No CO2 or H2S impurities
  • "This is an excellent test result, in excess of our expectations, and will enable us to accelerate appraisal and commercialization of the KN-1 discovery which was announced to shareholders in March," said Aminex Chairman Brian Hall. "It further justifies our decision to go into the nearby Songo-Songo West area, a new PSA for which was announced on 2 June."
