Africa Oil Corp. (TSXV:AOI) announced that it has spudded the Twiga South-1 exploration well at its Block 13T concession in onshore Kenya. Additionally, the company noted that its Paipai-1 well, also in onshore Kenya, is on schedule to spud next month.
As quoted in the press release:
The [Twiga South-1] well is planned to a total depth of 3,114 meters and targets the same structural trend and reservoirs as the recent Ngamia-1 oil discovery 23 kilometers to the south. The well is operated by Tullow Oil plc (“Tullow”) who hold a 50% working interest and will be using the Weatherford 804 rig that was used to drill Ngamia-1. An extensive coring and testing program is planned if the well encounters similar pay sands as at the Ngamia-1 discovery.
