Africa Hydrocarbons Inc. has commenced the re-completion of the BHN-1 well on the Bouhajla Permit in Tunisia. As previously announced, this operation will entail pulling the existing production tubing from the wellbore and re-perforating the Abiod formation using a casing gun and deep penetrating charges, followed by acidization of the perforated intervals. It is expected that the re-completion operation will take approximately two weeks to complete.
John Nelson, CEO of the Company states, "We are pleased the re-completion operation is underway. The next steps will hopefully provide insights on the extent and quality of the fracture network in the vicinity of the wellbore and establish the hydrocarbon potential of the Abiod formation in the BHN-1 well and also provide additional data to understand the hydrocarbon potential of other prospects on the remainder of our 536 square kilometer block."
