Tullow Oil PLC (>> Tullow Oil plc), the oil explorer, said Friday that the Enyenra-4A appraisal well, in the Deepwater Tano license offshore Ghana, has successfully encountered oil in very good quality sandstone reservoirs.
-Good evidence of communication with the Owo-1 discovery wells and the Enyenra appraisal wells confirms the significant extent of the Enyenra light oil field.
- Results of drilling, wireline logs, samples of reservoir fluids and pressure data show that Enyenra-4A has intersected 32 meters of net oil pay.
-Pressure data from the oil leg has demonstrated that the oil is in static communication with the oil seen in the other wells in the field and indicates a continuous oil column of approximately 600 meters.
-On completion of operations, the well will be suspended for later use.
-The drillship will return at a later date to the Deepwater Tano block to perform a drill stem test on the oil zone in the Ntomme-2A well.
-Shares closed Thursday at 1,471 pence valuing the company at GBP13.31 billion.
