Circle Oil provides the preliminary results of drilling of the well CGD-12 in the Sebou Permit, onshore Morocco.
The well is located within the western central area of the Sebou Permit, about 4 kilometres to the south of the main gas gathering station. The well was spud on 25 August and drilled to a TD of 1,232 metres MD. Gas shows, which were confirmed by wire logging, were encountered at different levels within the Guebbas and Hoot sands.
The total net gas pay encountered in the well from wireline log analysis is 9.7 metres. The seven inch liner was run and cemented and the first test over the secondary target Intra Hoot sands flowed at a sustained rate of 2.21 MMscf/d on a 18/64" choke. The second test over the main target Main Hoot sands flowed at a sustained rate of 4.62 MMscf/d on a 24/64" choke. The well will be completed for future production and the Upper Hoot and Guebbas sands will be available for production at a later date.
