FAR said that drilling has begun on the SNE-5 appraisal well offshore Senegal. The well and the following SNE-6 well will evaluate the upper SNE reservoir units’ connectivity and deliverability by oil flow testing that will include interference tests. The new wells follow a four-well appraisal program that the company called “highly successful.” FAR has a 15% interest in the SNE field, which is operated by Cairn Energy (40%). Other participants are ConocoPhillips (35%) and Petrosen (10%).
