Four oil and gas wells to be drilled this year

Four hydrocarbon research and prospecting wells will be drilled in Mozambique this year.

Two of the wells will be drilled in the Angoche region, one in the Búzi area and a fourth in the PT5-C area operated by Sasol, a source from the National Petroleum Institute (INP) told ‘Notícias’.

This will be the second time in almost a year that drilling has been carried out in Angoche. Last year, Eni drilled a well, with negative results, but it was later concluded that it would be necessary to re-evaluate the data.

“In this context, additional studies are underway by the operator, who has already expressed interest in extending the period of activities in order to complete the work program,” explained the INP source.

According to the INP, the work is progressing satisfactorily, and in the coming months there will be more conclusive data on the additional potential of the area, which could in turn open up space for more research.

Two wells were opened in the Búzi Block in recent years, and the operator continues to evaluate the potential of natural gas discoveries in the area.
