Nairobi - Tullow Oil is upbeat at the country's prospects for the product.
Angus McCoss, Exploration Director, Tullow Oil, in an trade update, said the success of the Ngamia-2 exploratory appraisal well built on the company's major basin opening discovery well, Ngamia-1.
He said the Agete -1 well test flowed at 500 bopd and the partnership continue to evaluate this discovery.
"With five rigs drilling in Kenya and Ethiopia, there is much to look forward to in the second half of the year," said McCoss.
According to the company, Ngamia-2 appraisal well encounters up to 39 metres of net oil pay and 11 metres of net gas pay.
The PR Marriott 46 rig has recently completed the Ngamia-2 well which was drilled 1.7 km from the Ngamia-1 discovery well to test the northwest flank of the prospect.
The well appears to have identified a new fault block trap north of the main Ngamia accumulation.
"The reservoirs were high quality with more than 200 meters of net reservoir sands with good permeability inferred from MDT sampling. The well has been suspended for testing and the rig will continue to drill up to 4 additional appraisal wells in the Ngamia field area for an extended well test programme," the company stated.
It said a 3D seismic programme was currently being concluded over the field area which should allow for detailed mapping of the fault trends.
