Second strat well spudded by our neighbour

On May 5th, 2021, our neighbour Recon Africa has announced to have spudded its second strat well, according to company’s operating plan. This well, named 6-1, is drilling to a target depth of 3,800 meters (12,500 feet).

“The 6-1 well is designed to evaluate the petroleum systems discovered in the first well (6-2) in an area of maximum thickness.”-says Recon Africa.  

MEL follows with great interest the drilling updates of this second test well. The drilling location is approximately 200 km away from MEL’s licence
