Our neighbour ca. 100/200 km to the East – ReconAfrica – will imminently spud its debut wildcat. They are targeting a prospect that could hold 800 million barrels of oil in place.
This wildcat well 8-2 is to be drilled to a planned depth of 2800 metres and is designed to test potential conventional oil and natural gas reservoirs in sandstone, part of the company’s primary Karoo Rift Fill play.
The well will also be drilled deeper into the Pre-Karoo Mulden and Otavi formations.
It is our strong belief that the oil and gas shows seen in the 6-2 well were sourced from the Pre-Karoo Owambo Basin rather than the <1500m deep Karoo Rift.
It is clear that hydrocarbons have migrated into the Rift from the Owambo Basin.
Recon’s upcoming campaign strongly supports the prospectivity of Monitor’s acreage which sits in the heart of the Owambo Basin, directly above the interpreted source kitchen.
