UK’s Senergy Limited credited the Ntorya-1 well with gross 153bcf of gas in place, of which 70bcf are considered gross best estimate contingent resources. A further gross best estimate of undiscovered gas in place of over 1tcf  is attributed to the Ntorya Prospect as a whole and is the target of the Ntorya-2 well which is being drilled updip and in a thicker part of the sand body interpreted on the 2014 seismic data acquired to facilitate appraisal.
