Cameroon: Victoria Oil & Gas provides Logbaba development drilling update

Monday, 28 November 2016 11:48

(Ecofin Agency) - Victoria Oil & Gas in its operational update on Monday, announced that following the drilling of well La-107 on November 1, 2016, its subsidiary, Gaz du Cameroun (GDC), has successfully drilled, cased and cemented the topmost section of the well to a depth of 400 metres.

According to the company, operations on La-107 were afterwards suspended as planned and the 1500 HP Komako 1 drilling rig, owned and operated by Savannah Oil Services Cameroon S.A. has moved to the La-108 well location to drill the 17½" hole section on La-108, after which the rig will be moved back to the La-107 well to drill its 17½" hole section. La-108 was drilled on November 12, 2016 and has been spud and cased to a depth of 400 metres.

The gas bearing target horizons, from which both new wells are expected to produce, are in the Upper Cretaceous Logbaba Formation, a thick sequence of interbedded sands and shales found at depths between 1,700m and 3,200m below the surface. The two new wells located in the Logbaba Gas Field located in Douala, Cameroon, are required to meet the growing market demand for gas in Douala, to develop Logbaba reserves and to move some of the 2P (Proven plus Probable) reserves into the 1P (Proven) reserve category.
