  • Exploration discoveries

    Arthur Berman, Contributing Editor

    Africa-Middle East. Tullow Oil made two oil discoveries in the Albert Basin of western Uganda with its Kigogole-3 and Wahrindi-1 wells. The Kigogole-3 well on Block 2 found 50 ft of pay in Kasamene sands (Miocene–Pliocene) and an additional 15 ft of pay in a new pay zone above the main reservoir. Kigogole-3 is located along the south shore of Lake Albert near the Kigogole-1 discovery and Heritage Oil’s Warthog discovery on adjacent Block 1, both announced last year. Kigogole-3 was drilled to a TD of 1,886 ft, and Tullow operates with 100% interest. Tullow estimates that overall reserve potential on the block may exceed 1 billion bbl. The Wahrindi-1 well was drilled in the Victoria Nile Delta Block 2, about 8 mi southwest of Kigogole-3, to a TD of 4,265 ft. Tullow announced that it is an oil discovery, but no further information has been released.
