Bowleven announces intention to deepen Sapele-3 exploration well drilling in Douala Basin, offshore Cameroon
The Sapele-3 well is located circa 16 km North West of Sapele-1 and circa thirteen kilometres North West of the D-1r wells. The well is drilling in water depths of approximately 30m.


Bowleven announced recently that the well had encountered oil and gas condensate in the Deep Omicron and D-1r equivalent intervals respectively and that drilling within the Deep Omicron interval was to continue.


A further MDT sampling and extensive sidewall core programme has been carried out. The data acquired will now be evaluated. Casing has now been set and a liner run pending further drilling.


Given the optimised well design and progress made operationally with Sapele-3, the current intention, subject to final government approval, is to drill on through the Deep Omicron interval into the Epsilon Complex. The Epsilon Complex was previously drilled with the Sapele-1 exploration well where the presence of both gas condensate and oil were confirmed and represents a highly prospective interval that Bowleven believes warrants further investigation.
