SDX Energy Company has completed drilling the KSS-2 well on the Sebou permit in Morocco at 1293 meters total depth. The company faced 8 net meters of high quality reservoir interspace in the Gaddari and Guebbas sequences. The interval has a 30% average porosity, Egypt Oil & Gas reports.

According to the company’s drilling program, SAH-2 will be the following well to be drilled, and it will be located on the ‘downthrown’ side of the fault. The SAH-2 well is aimed to have a similar structure as seen at KSS-2. SDX expects high probability that the SAH-2 well will be commercially charged, Proactive Investors informs.

“Whilst the KSS-2 well was not a commercial success, we are viewing this one result in the context of what is already a very successful drilling campaign with four out of six discoveries to date. Using directional drilling equipment for the first time in the basin, we drilled a step out location in order to try to prove up a new concept, and potentially new volumes. Whilst KSS-2 was not successful, our belief is that this result proves that the main bounding fault provides a good seal and therefore gives us a further confidence in the forthcoming prospects. We are looking forward to drilling the final three wells in this program and reporting on their results in due course,” stated Paul Welch, SDX President and CEO.
