UK’s Sound Energy announced the successful drilling of the onshore Morocco TE-7 to a total measured depth of 3,459m. The Tendrara wells are expected to be pumping gas by 2019, reported The North Africa Post.

Sound Energy is planning to complete test drilling of a horizontal well at the onshore prospect by December following promising results from vertical well tests, which showed a flow rate of 481,000cm/d of gas, according to Morocco World News. Furthermore, an extended well test will follow the rigless operations for approximately 70 days to confirm production sustainability and to aid comprehensive field development planning

The group plans to drill its first outpost well at Tendrara, TE-8, with the objective of proving up significant additional volumes, in early 2017.

Egypt Oil&Gas reported late June that the European/Mediterranean focused upstream gas company, Sound Energy had revealed that the preliminary petrophysical analysis of the first Tendrara well, onshore Morocco, had confirmed the presence of a number of gas bearing levels and a total net pay of 28m in the TAGI reservoir.
