The UK-based gas company struck 20 metres of net pay at the Pweza-2 appraisal well on the block, located two kilometres from the Pweza discovery well.

BG Group's partner Ophir Energy, which holds a 40 per cent stake, said the pay zone was of excellent reservoir quality and pressure communication with Pweza-1 was confirmed.

The find has reportedly firmed up the resource estimate at Pweza, which currently stands at 48bn cubic metres of gross recoverable resources.

The Deepsea Metro 1 drillship is now expected to move onto the Pweza-3 appraisal well while a drill stem test is also planned on the discovery, BG Group said.
