Anglo African Oil & Gas resumes production from TLP-101 well

During the drilling of TLP-103, the TLP-101 well, which produced about 30 bopd, was taken offline due to the proximity of a flare to the drilling apparatus.

The flare has been upgraded and relocated, and the TLP-101 has been brought back into production at an average of 55 bopd over a two week test period, the company said in a press release.

During the downtime, the company engaged a specialist reservoir engineering company to conduct a full review of wells TLP-101 and TLP-102, which revealed connectivity between the two wells.

Due to this connectivity, the reservoir engineering company has recommended the use of TLP-102 as a water injector to increase production from TLP-101 to up to 400 bopd.

AAOG Executive Chairman David Sefton said, “While the recent focus of news from the company has rightly been on TLP-103C and the very successful drilling campaign, we have also been working methodically on the other two wells at the Tilapia site.”

“TLP-101 being taken offline for a while provided a perfect opportunity to run tests that would not ordinarily have been possible. Following these tests, TLP-101 has been successfully brought back online and at rates of production which are materially more than those at which that well has produced over recent years,” he explained.

“However, the very interesting result of the testing and the excellent work by the reservoir engineering company has been to come up with several interesting and innovative ideas which have the potential to make TLP-101 produce at levels that would generate significant income for the company,” he added.
