Victoria Oil & Gas said Gaz du Cameroun S.A. (GDC) announces that following spudding of well La-107 on November 1 2016, it has successfully drilled, cased and cemented the uppermost, 18-5/8-inch section of the well to a depth of 400 metres.
Operations on La-107 were then suspended as planned and the rig was skidded a distance of 10 metres along the rail system to the La-108 well location.
The 1500 HP Komako 1 drilling rig, owned and operated by Savannah Oil Services Cameroon S.A., is a rail-mounted drilling rig and can skid between the two wells in a matter of hours.
Well La-108 was spudded on 12 November 2016 and has been drilled and cased to a depth of 400 metres. Currently, Savannah is drilling the 17-1/2-inch hole section on La-108, after which the rig will be skidded back to the La-107 well to drill its 17-1/2-inch hole section. The gas bearing target horizons, from which it is anticipated both new wells will produce, are in the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian and Santonian) Logbaba Formation, which is a thick sequence of interbedded sands and shales found at depths between 1,700m and 3,200m below the surface.
Gaz du Cameroun is Victoria Oil & Gas' Cameroon gas producing and distributing subsidiary.
