Petronas strikes gas off Mauritania

Nov 12, 2008 01:00 AM

Malaysian state oil company Petronas has hit an 86 metre gross gas column with its Banda East-1B appraisal well off Mauritania in north-west Africa.
Australian partner Roc Oil said that preliminary results show 22 metres of net gas pay and a 19 metre gross oil column, with 7 metres net oil pay. Roc added that the fluid contacts were in line with the pre-drill expectations.

The Banda oil and gas field is in about 300 metres of water and spans production sharing contract Area A and Area B.
The forward plan for the well, which hit a total depth of 2,716 metres, is to run final casing and prepare for gas deliverability testing, but there is no plan to test the oil let at this time, Roc said.

Petronas operates contract Area A with a 53.846 % interest, with Anglo-Irish independent Tullow Oil holding a 24.3 % interest, Roc Oil on a 4.155 % stake, Mauritania Holdings with a 13.084 % share, Fusion Mauritania on 3 % interest and FP Mauritania on the remaining 1.615 % stake.
