Wentworth has commenced drilling operations on the Kifaru-1 exploration well in the Rovuma Onshore Concession in northern Mozambique. Wentworth has an 11.59% net interest in this well, which is being operated by Anadarko and drilled with the Helmerich & Payne rig #243.
The Kifaru-1 exploration well is targeting Miocene sands, similar to the reservoirs in the Mnazi Bay and Msimbati gas fields in southern Tanzania, as well as Oligocene and Cretaceous sands. The Kifaru-1 well has a planned total depth of 4,050 meters True Vertical Depth Sub Sea and, based on the current drilling program, is expected to take approximately 70 days to complete. The Company will provide an update after drilling operations have been completed.
