Africa Oil Corp. is pleased to provide the following update on its operations in Kenya.
During the second quarter of 2015, activities were focused on the appraisal of the South Lokichar basin to test the extent of previous discoveries and gain important reservoir data for the field development plans.
A number of Extended Well Tests (EWTs) have been completed at the Amosing field, and preparations are advanced for the Ngamia field EWTs which are due to commence in August. The Amosing-1 and Amosing-2 wells were completed in five separate zones and initial rig-less flow testing during clean-up flowed at a cumulative maximum rate of 5,600 and 6,000 bopd respectively. These results exceeded expectations, and demonstrated high quality reservoir sands which flowed 31 to 38 degree API dry oil under natural conditions. During the test the wells produced at a cumulative average constrained rate of 4,300 bopd under natural flow conditions.
Pressure data from the two wells supports significant connected oil volumes and confirms lateral reservoir continuity, which is positive for the future development. A cumulative volume of 30,000 barrels of oil has been produced into storage. Water injection tests are under way to further validate the viability of water flood reservoir management and the oil recovery assumptions.
