Wentworth Resources announced in an operational update that the farm-out process for its Tembo-1 appraisal asset in northern Mozambique is now underway, Petroleum Africa reported.

The analysis of the results from the Tembo-1 discovery well and interpretation of the existing seismic data are now complete, according to Oil Review Africa.  The Company is continuing to advance its appraisal program and is looking to secure an industry partner to participate in an appraisal well, which is planned for the second quarter of 2018.

Additionally, Wentworth has discovered a number of potential drilling locations in east Africa, and has started pre-planning for the work for appraisal well.

Wentworth’s Managing Director, Geoff Bury, stated “We are very excited about being ready and in a position to advance the appraisal of the Tembo-1 discovery and feel confident that this exciting opportunity will attract an industry partner who shares our commitment to drilling an appraisal well next year.”
