Morocco’s upstream gas company, Sound Energy, has found gas at a second well test at TE-10 in Tendrara area at Morocco’s onshore, Pipeline Oil and Gas Magazine reported.

Sound Energy has affirmed that the initial phase of the test program, the unstimulated test, has now been largely completed, over a gross interval of 158 meters between measured depths (MD) of 1932 and 2090 meters MD in the TAGI. The test secured hydrocarbon gas to surface (C1 to C5 composition) from within the primary shallow zone, a section of which was perforated from 1932 to 1938 meters MD.  This has been achieved without stimulation or artificial lift.

The test program involves rig-less re-entry of the TE-10 well in the TAGI reservoir and both unstimulated and stimulated flow tests on multiple intervals.

The next step in the operation will be to mechanically stimulate the most prospective zones, to establish potentially commercial flow rates of gas.
