The ongoing 3D Seismic surveys over an area of 550 square kilometers in Blocks 10BB and 13T will be through by the end of the third quarter according to Africa Oil.
The seismic program is ongoing over the discoveries and prospects along the Basin Bounding Fault Play in the discovered basin in Northern Kenya.
The Blocks are held by Tullow Oil and Africa Oil on an operated interest of 50% each.
Block 10BB has been among the success stories by the two explorers with successful wells at Loperot 1, Amosing 1 and Etuko 1 while Block 13T has seen discoveries at Ngamia 1, Agete 1, Twiga South 1 and Ekale.
Last year the two companies carried out 2D seismic over approximately 1,128 kilometers of 2D seismic focused on defining prospects in the South and North Kerio Basins, with the aim of defining drilling prospects for the 2014 exploratory drilling program.
The current exploration phase under the Block 10BB PSC expires in July 2014, includes a commitment to drill one exploratory well with the planned work program in Block 10BB will exceed the PSC commitment.[twitter-follow screen_name=’oilnewskenya’]
