Taipan Resources Inc., through its Kenya-based subsidiary Lion Petroleum (Lion), provided the following update on drilling operations for the Badada-1 well, Block-2B, onshore Kenya.

The Badada-1 well commenced drilling operations at 14:00 GMT Jan. 7 and has been drilled to a total depth of 3,011 feet (918 meters) MDBRT (Measured Depth Below the Rotary Table) intersecting a Neogene sequence. A 20-inch casing has been set at 977 feet (298 meters) MDBRT and the well is currently drilling ahead with the 17.5-inch section to the next casing point.
