ReconAfrica spuds 2nd Namibian well
Toronto-listed Reconnaissance Energy Africa (ReconAfrica) has spudded the second of three planned wells in the deep Kavango basin in the Kalahari Desert of northeast Namibia, it said on May 5.
The 6-1 well is designed to evaluate the petroleum systems discovered in the first well, 6-2, in an area of maximum thickness. These first two wells are within one of five major sub-basins of the larger, more laterally extensive, Permian aged deep Kavango basin, the company said.
“The company will take whole core, side-wall core and conduct a full logging suite of all zones of interest (conventional targets and source rocks),” ReconAfrica said. “As with the 6-2, a comprehensive state-of-the-art logging programme over both sections will be provided by Schlumberger.”
ReconAfrica is a junior oil and gas company engaged in the development of the newly discovered Kavango Basin, in northeast Namibia, where it holds a 90% working interest in a 25,500 km2 petroleum licence.
