DNO tastes dust in Mozambique

Norway's DNO International has hit dust with the Chite-1 wildcat, drilled on the Inhaminga Block in Mozambique.

The well reached a target depth of 3500 metres. No hydrocarbons were detected in Chite-1. Chite-1 is the first well to be drilled in the Urema Graben in Mozambique, a potential new play fairway that DNO is testing for source rocks, reservoir rocks and potential hydrocarbon trapping mechanisms.

DNO said ti will push ahead with exploration at Inhaminga and has exercised an option with the contractor to drill a second well, Inhaminga High-1. Inhaminga High-1 is another high impact frontier exploration well east of the Chite-1 site.
