Tlou spuds Lesedi 6 gas production pod in Botswana
Australia’s Tlou Energy has spudded the Lesedi 6 gas production pod as part of the next phase of drilling at its Lesedi coalbed methane (CBM) project in Botswana, the company said on April 13.
The pod will comprise one vertical production well intersected by two lateral wells drilled horizontally through the target reservoir section for several hundred metres. The objective of the pod is to increase the volume of gas available for power generation, Tlou said.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
Lesedi 6 is the first well of a planned drilling programme to expand gas production at the Lesedi project. Gas from Lesedi 6 is planned to be used for electricity generation for the existing 10 MW power purchase agreement with Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) once the transmission line, substations and associated electrical infrastructure are in place.
