Tortue Field Appraisal Well Hits 98-Feet of Hydrocarbon-Bearing Reservoir
Panoro Energy has revealed that the DTM-3 appraisal well, located at the Tortue field within the Dussafu License offshore Gabon, has encountered approximately 98-feet of hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir.
“The DTM 3 appraisal well has been a great operational and technical success,” John Hamilton, CEO at Panoro Energy, said in a company statement.
“This well result provides further evidence of the upside potential at Dussafu, offshore Gabon,” he added.
The DTM-3 appraisal wellbore was designed to appraise the western flank of the Tortue field. Development of this flank is likely to form part of Phase 2 development at Tortue, Panoro Energy said.
As planned, DTM 3 has now been plugged and abandoned. Operations are now underway to drill and complete the second horizontal production well, DTM-3H, which will target the Gamba Sandstone formation in the central part of the field.
