Africa Oil Corp. is pleased to announce an update on its operations in Kenya and Ethiopia.
In the third quarter of 2015, the Amosing-5A exploratory appraisal well in Block 10BB was drilled as a test of an undrilled fault block. The well encountered an estimated 15 to 28 metres of net oil pay in a downflank position and successfully proved a northern extension to the Amosing field.
The Twiga-3 exploratory appraisal well in Block 13T encountered sands within the Lokone Shale sequence that are interpreted as good quality oil bearing reservoir over a gross interval of 120 metres. This result will be assessed in future exploration and appraisal activities, stepping out into the South Lokichar basin to further define this encouraging additional oil potential.
