Gas reserve found in Tanzania’s Ruvuma Basin

Feb 29, 2012 12:00 AM

Oil and gas firm, Aminex, recently reported the discovery of gas at the Ntorya-1 well in Tanzania.
The group, which operates the project and its partner Solo Oil said that the Ntorya-1 well has made a gas discovery in the Ruvuma Basin onshore Tanzania.

Evaluation of electric logs from the well have confirmed the presence of reservoired gas, showing a gross sand interval of 25 meters with a 3 meter net gas bearing pay zone, said Aminex.
Earlier this month Statoil discovered some amount of gas offshore around Mafia Island. The company is now assessing whether the amount is commercially viable.

The presence of gas bearing reservoir sandstones in the Ntorya-1 well confirms the potential for additional prospectivity in the thick Mesozoic sandstones that were encountered in the Likonde-1 well, said Solo Oil.
The well will now be deepened and suspended for flow testing once the company mobilises the necessary equipment to the site.
