Sound Energy Confirms Large Gas Discovery in Morocco

Sound Energy PLC, a British upstream company,  confirmed a significant gas discovery and a potential single gas column at the company’s Tendrara license, onshore Morocco, Reuters reported. The first Tendrara well, TE-6, was drilled to a measured vertical depth of 2,665 meters, informed World Oil.

The company has achieved a stabilized gas flow rate, post stimulation, of 17.0 mscf/d. This is significantly above initial expectations and represents a highly commercial rate.

Together with Schlumberger, Sound Energy is preparing for the second well at Tendrara, TE-7, drilling is scheduled for August 2016. It will be located approximately 1.3 km from TE-6. The company is planning a third well drilling later in the year, explained Telegraph.

TE-6 will be suspended until the results of TE-7 are confirmed, at which point the company expects to apply for a production concession and commence detailed engineering for construction of the necessary infrastructure.

Sound Energy CEO, James Parsons, was quoted in E&P Magazine as saying: “I believe Tendrara, Meridja and the Eastern Morocco TAGI play have the potential to be a material hydrocarbon province on a regional scale and therefore to transform both Sound Energy and the Moroccan gas industry.”
