Oil and gas exploration company, Bowleven, has announced that drilling operations have begun on the Moambe exploration well on the Bomono Permit, onshore Cameroon
Moambe, the second well, is situated just over two kilometres East of the first well.
Zingana was a previously undrilled Paleocene three-way dip fault block targeting multiple sands. The well will be drilled to an estimated target depth of 1,620 metres MD, according to Bowleven.
Further petrophysical evaluation on the Zingana discovery well is taking place and as agreed by all parties involved the well has been halted to allow future re-entry and testing. The plan is to drill, log and evaluate both wells prior to determining any testing plan.
Bowleven noted that further details on drilling activities will be made in due course.
