Circle pushes back Sebou tests

AIM-listed Circle Oil has postponed flow testing at the DRJ-6 well, in the Sebou licence in Morocco's onshore play, but added the well has hit gas-bearing sands.

The well, the fourth in the company’s six-well campaign in the Rharb basin, was drilled to a total depth of 1366 metres and hit four metres of gas bearing sands with significant gas readings recorded during drilling and interpreted from subsequent logging operations.

However, Circle said it needs specialised drilling materials and testing equipment for flow tests of the sands close to the top of the Base Guebbas formation.

These sands will be tested at a later date.

The drilling rig is now moving to commence drilling CGD-10, the fifth well of the campaign.

Circle boss David Hough said: "We are very pleased to have drilled and logged more gas bearing sands in our latest well and look forward to testing the well in due course.

"Spudding of the CGD-10 well is anticipated to commence as soon as the re-mobilisation of the drilling rig and equipment to the site has been successfully completed.”
