SDX Energy Inc., the North Africa focused oil and gas company, said it has spud its SD-4X appraisal well at South Disouq in Egypt.
The SD-4X well is the first of two planned appraisal wells in the Company's 2018 drilling campaign at South Disouq, which is operates with a 55 per cent interest. The well is anticipated to take up to 30 days to drill and if successful, will be completed, flow tested and connected to the infrastructure being developed at the SD-1X discovery location.
SDX’s last Egypt well – the Kelvin-1X exploration well, was plugged and abandoned after encountering uncommercial levels of gas. The rig was then moved to the SD-4X location.
