In 2009 and 2010, Gaz du Cameroun (formerly known as Rodeo Development Limited) drilled and completed two wells, La-105 and La-106. La-105 twinned the SEREPCA La-103 well, La-106 was a stepout well drilled into an unappraised part of Logbaba about 500 m north-east of the La-104 well location. Both of the new wells were drilled directionally from a drilling pad located over the centre of the field to minimise the environmental and social impacts of drilling in a populated area. La-105 tested at flow rates of up to 55 mmscf/d while La-106 tested at flow rates of up to 22 mmscf/d from the Logbaba formation. Both wells have been completed with 4½” tubing. As the wells are produced and the open producing intervals become depleted, additional, shallower sands will be opened with perforating guns run on wireline.
Victoria Oil and Gas has developed a local market for gas with customers including breweries, metal foundries, food processing plants and packaging facilities. Gas Sales Contracts have been signed throughout 2010-2013 with numerous industrial firms including some multinational firms.
The initial target markets for Logbaba natural gas are industrial customers in Douala and Bonaberi for:
A low-pressure High Density Polyethylene sales gas pipeline network is being installed in four phases to supply customers in Central Douala, South East Douala and South West Douala. The gas is priced at $16 per MMbtu (approximately $16/mcf or $96 per boe) and has a high heating value of 1060 btu/scf. (see Chart 2)

The total gas distribution network will be approximately 44 km in length comprising pipe diameters between 400mm, and 63 mm with a design pressure of 7 barg and a normal operating pressure of 5.5 barg. The gas distribution network is being constructed in unpaved ground, black top highway and land adjacent to the Douala rail network. Horizontal boring wells, where required, are planned to avoid disruption to trains, traffic and other utilities such as buried electricity cables, fiber optic cables, water and drains.
The custody transfer point will be immediately downstream of a Pressure Reduction, Metering and further Condensate Removal facility located within the customer’s premises with a pressure range 200 – 500 mbarg.
In July 2012, the Company announced the commencement of continuous gas and condensate production operations at Logbaba. The Company’s first three customers were taking delivery of gas in sufficient volume to allow the production facilities to operate 24 hours a day, delivering gas in full compliance with specification.
