Sound Energy, the Moroccan focused upstream gas company, said its estimate of gas volumes in place at the Tendrara TE-7 well has nearly tripled following a pressure test.
The latest reservoir pressure measurements, important to gauge connected volume of in place gas (GOIP) accessible by the well, reveal a current reservoir pressure of 413.4 bara, with the pressure continuing to increase towards original reservoir pressure of 422.6, Sound Energy said in a statement.
“Analysis of the pressures measured in the well recorded over time has led to an increase in the company's estimate of connected GOIP around TE-7 to a volume exceeding 115 Bscf,” it said.
Previously, the company’s gas estimate exceeded 40 Bscf.
The measured pressure data provides further information on the extent and quality of the reservoir at TE-7 and provides additional confidence for the development plan of the company's existing TE-5 Horst discovery, which remains subject to Final Investment Decision, Sound said.
The significant increase in the company's estimates of minimum GOIP connected to the TE-7 well provides support for the company's field development plan consisting of a number of horizontal stimulated production wells spaced to optimise recovery.
