VAALCO Energy, Inc. has commenced a new six well drilling campaign offshore Gabon on its Etame Marin block. The development drilling campaign follows the recent on-schedule installation of the Etame platform and the Southeast Etame/North Tchibala (SEENT) platform. All work on this project was accomplished without a safety or environmental incident.

All six wells in the current drilling campaign are development wells and VAALCO has spudded the first well, Etame 8-H, using the contracted Transocean "Constellation II" jack-up rig. The Constellation II rig will be used to drill two additional development wells (Etame 9-H and 10-H), each targeting the Gamba sand formation in the Etame field, where VAALCO has been producing oil since 2002 utilizing subsea wells. First oil production from the Etame 8-H well is expected in December 2014.
