Sound Energy has provided the following update.
The processing of the logs while drilling and wire line logs at the first Tendrara well has now been completed. The preliminary petrophysical analysis confirms the presence of a number of gas bearing levels and a total net pay of 28 m in the TAGI reservoir. This is ahead of initial expectations.
A further announcement will be made following the completion of operations and when the results of the well test are confirmed.
In anticipation of drilling of the second well at Tendrara, the Company has now applied for the first complementary period under the licence terms. This period triggers a commitment to a second well.
The Company has now exercised its option to acquire, subject to regulatory and other approvals, a 55% participating interest in the Meridja exploration permit, onshore Morocco, from Oil & Gas Investment Fund S.A.S.
The Meridja licence area is adjacent to the Tendrara licence and is a highly prospective 9000 km2 area with the same fundamental geology as Tendrara.
The Company continues to pursue its counter-cyclical growth strategy and to evaluate selective opportunities to complement its existing portfolio.
