Predator Oil & Gas, the Jersey-based company with near-term gas operations focussed on Morocco, has announced that the Star Valley Rig 101 is now on the MOU-2 well location in the Guercif Licence, onshore northern Morocco
Final preparations are being made to commence drilling.
A further update will be given, which is subject to partner approval, when MOU-2 reaches its intended pre-drill total depth of 1,500 m TVD KB and prior to the commencement of wireline logging operations.
As previously announced, the well will be drilled to 1,500 m TVD below ground level and is expected to take between 12 to 15 days to complete. The primary gas target is anticipated to be reached within 10 days of the commencement of drilling, subject to no unexpected operational delays. The possible presence of high pressure gas in the primary target has been prudently allowed for in the well design and for the operational procedures.to be adopted whilst drilling into this potential gas reservoir.
