New Country, Proven Oil

  • Proven Oil with 70 wells drilled within the WNZ block and 114km of 2D seismic acquired
  • Well testing program targeting up to STOIIP 24 mmbbls spread over 8 pools (first target comprises approximately 50% of total STOIIP)
  • The work program comprises geological and geophysical studies and two extended well tests during initial 3-year period
  • It is anticipated that should the extended production tests be successful then their future development could lead to additional production in excess of 500 bopd.

Production Potential
