Logbaba Drilling Update – La-108 Well Completion

1 Dec 2017


Victoria Oil & Gas Plc today provides an update on the Group's drilling operations, which are managed by Gaz du Cameroon S.A. (“GDC”), a wholly owned subsidiary of VOG.

  • Liner has been run and cemented to case off well to depth of 2,859m
  • Flow tests planned and La-108 expected to be a producing well by mid-December

As previously announced, well La-108 was successfully drilled to its planned Target Depth (TD) of the 6” hole section at 2,865m Measured Depth (MD) (2,463m TVD) on 7 November.

After reaching TD, the drilling rig experienced electrical problems that delayed progress by 14 days. The problems have been rectified and the 4½” liner has been run to TD and cemented in place. Current operations involve installation of permanent production equipment in the well.

As soon as the completion equipment is run the drilling rig will be skidded off La-108 and released. The production tree will then be installed and the well perforated and flow tested prior to connecting it to the Logbaba gas processing facilities. Preliminary analysis of the La-108 logs indicates 84.5m of net gas sand in the Logbaba Formation.

The flow testing is expected to commence during December and the well will then be put on production around mid-December.
