SDX Spuds First Well in South Disouq Drilling Campaign

SDX Energy Inc. has spudded its Ibn Yunus-1X exploration well at South Disouq in Egypt.

The well, which is anticipated to take approximately 30 days to drill, will be targeting the same conventional natural gas bearing Abu Madi intervals discovered in the SD-1X well in April 2017. This is the first of a planned four well program on the South Disouq concession.

Ibn Yunus-1X will be followed by two appraisal wells (SD-4X and 3X) in the original SD-1X structure which, if successful, will be used as producers.

The final well in the program, Kelvin-1X, will be an exploration well which, if successful, would be tied into the facilities located at the SD-1X field.

“I am very excited to be back drilling in the South Disouq concession,” Paul Welch, president and CEO of SDX, said in a company statement.

“The success of the SD-1X well proved the existence of source rock in this area which was our biggest uncertainty pre-drill. The technical work that’s been completed by our team after the first successful well has provided us with additional confidence in our ability to identify conventional natural gas bearing intervals within the 3D seismic data set,” he added.
