Sound Energy, the Moroccan focused upstream gas company, said it spud TE-10, the second well of a planned three exploration well campaign in Eastern Morocco.
The TE-10 well will test the North East Lakbir prospect in the company's Greater Tendrara permit, Sound Energy said. The well is located approximately 25 kilometres to the northeast of the recently awarded Tendrara production concession.
TE-10 is expected to be drilling to a total depth at approximately 2,200m and is expected to take between 30 to 40 days.
The well is designed to test both a material TAGI stratigraphic trap and a smaller TAGI structural closure. The North East Lakbir stratigraphic trap has updated mid case potential on a gross (100 per cent) basis of 2.7 Tcf GOIP (4.5 Tcf GOIP upside case and a 1.5 Tcf GOIP low case) with a Sound Energy internally estimated chance of success of 14 per cent.
TE-10 lies within the stratigraphic trap, located on a smaller structural closure which has a mid-case potential, on a gross (100 per cent) basis, of 128 Bcf gas originally in place (GOIP) (210 Bcf GOIP upside case and a 75 Bcf low GOIP case) with a Sound Energy internally estimated chance of success of 26 per cent.
