Aminex has announced that Senergy, an independent oil and gas consultancy firm, has completed a technical evaluation on the resources of Kiliwani North Development Licence and Ruvuma PSA.
Kiliwani North Development Licence (58.5% Working Interest, Operated)
- PMean Gas Initially in Place (GIIP) of 44 BCF (gross) of which 28 BCF (gross) booked as Contingent Resources (Best Estimate, 2C)
- Company expects to book its first categorised reserves in Tanzania upon signing of a Gas Sales Agreement and commencement of production
Ruvuma PSA (75% Working Interest, Operated)
- Total Pmean GIIP for discovered and undiscovered resources of 4.17 TCF (gross)
- Ntorya 1 Discovery attributed 153 BCF Pmean GIIP (gross) of which 70 BCF (gross) booked as Contingent Resources (Best Estimate, 2C)
- Four main drillable targets attributed 3 TCF PMean GIIP (gross) (Ntorya Updip, Likonde Updip, Namisange, Sudi)
- Basin remains significantly underexplored according to international standards and it is likely that as further development occurs on the licence area additional leads will be identified and high graded to prospects
Nyuni Area PSA (70% Working Interest, Operated)
- Company remains focused on the deeper water potential of the licence
- The identified deep water leads are analogous to the numerous large discoveries to the east of the Nyuni Area licence
According to Aminex Chief Executive Jay Bhattacherjee says the analysis by Synergy correlate with recent seismic and technical work by the company. Aminex adds that following the evaluation it could turn to Ntorya 1 as a development asset.
‘We are extremely pleased with the results of the report which takes us a step closer to realising the considerable potential in the Ruvuma basin and validates the recent seismic and additional detailed technical work. In addition, the classification of Ntorya 1 as Contingent Resources establishes a second potential development asset within the company. With the recently completed pipeline and new industry developing in proximity, we will now undertake an evaluation of the development options for this asset. Combined with the commencement of production at Kiliwani North, which should allow the Company to book its first Tanzania gas reserves, we are entering into a very exciting time for Aminex.’
