Sound Energy has announced the completion of its 2D seismic acquisition programme in Eastern Morocco and selects location for the next well in its Tendrara discovery.
Sound said it has now finalised the specific location of the TE-10 exploration well, which will target the North East Lakbir prospect and is expected to spud immediately after the drilling of TE-9. This second well will target a high impact TAGI structural-stratigraphic play and will drill both the TAGI and the underlying Palaeozoic.
The company said that the acquisition of the new seismic coupled with the basin modelling has enabled it to increase its understanding of the TAGI structural play. It has also revealed, in addition to the existing structures targeted by the planned wells, a new large Palaeozoic structure to the North West of the structural-stratigraphic play.
Sound believes that the hydrocarbons in the Palaeozoic structure (essentially a palaeo-high onto which the TAGI reservoir pinches out) which, if correct, could be the largest prospect within the entire basin.
