Rockhopper Exploration plc (AIM: RKH), the oil and gas company with key interests in the North Falkland Basin and the Greater Mediterranean region, is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2017 drilling campaign on the Abu Sennan Concession in Egypt in which the Company has a 22% working interest.
Exploration well Al Jahraa SE-2X, situated on the recently awarded Abu Sennan-5 (Al Jahraa South East) Development Lease, was spudded on 25 April 2017 by the Operator Kuwait Energy as part of a two-well drilling campaign.
The well will target the Cretaceous Abu Roash-C reservoir in the fault block immediately to the south of the Al Jahraa South East discovery location where, if successful, it could add over 20 mmbbls of STOIIP to the development lease.
The well is anticipated to take approximately 40 days to drill and evaluate, and in the success case would be immediately completed as an oil producer.
Following completion of the Al Jahraa SE-2X well, the rig will move to the Al Jahraa-9 location to drill a development well which will target the AR-C reservoir at a location deeper than the current deepest oil penetration at Al Jahraa-4. The aim will be to demonstrate the connection between the Al Jahraa and Al Jahraa South East fields through the oil leg.
In addition, the operator has proposed two work-over operations during Q2 2017.
The outcome of the above programme will inform partner discussions regarding appropriate activities in the second half of the year.
Sam Moody, CEO of Rockhopper, commented:
"We are pleased to start this drilling campaign on our Egyptian acreage and hope it will enable us to build further on our local production and resource base. We look forward to updating the market on progress in due course."
You have google for that eegbvi unless you are referring to next year, well theyve got supercomputers that analyse data on mass from internet searches to phone calls, its all collected and processed and if the US wants to know which horse is being set up to win the gold cup they can. However i cant help but feel such information will be low down the list compared to finding terrorists and wmd's but then again with trump at the wheel you never know. He may even be a scrub rkh investor like the rest of us, using his supercomputers to work out if the BOD is ordering lidl's finest jaffa cakes or harrod's own brand. My money is whaleoil is trump fwiw.
America has probably militarilsed space with the black budget, with their fancy new lasers up there powered by micro fission reactors that are all the rage in the science community. The world has moved past missile defence systems, they just led the russians down a dead end like they did in the space race. The real war is online and in the markets guns and tanks is old school.
I see the Yanks have deployed their flagship Snail (THAAD) missile defence system in South Korea. It's light years behind Russia's S-500 missile defence system which zaps incoming missiles at a Blistering speeds of 25,000 kph or 16,000mph, that's more than twice the speed of America's THAAD.
