It is the second of a planned three well exploration programme at Tendrara, and, it is located around 25 kilometres away from Tendrara’s currently anticipated production area.
The drilling programme is expected to run for 30 to 40 days, with the well drilled down to a depth of 2,200 metres.
TE-10 is targeting a material TAGI stratigraphic trap and a smaller TAGI structural closure, Sound told investors. It is part of a play with estimated volumes of 2.7 Tcf mid case gross gas originally in place (GOIP) – 4.5 Tcf GOIP gross upside case and a 1.5 Tcf GOIP gross low case
Last month, the first well in the current programme (TE-9) was plugged and abandoned after it did not encounter producible gas.
