Sound Energy reported successful operations at the Koba-1 well at Sidi Moktar onshore Morocco. The company said it had successfully re-entered, completed, perforated, and flared gas at surface from the Argovian reservoir, which has been the main producing reservoir in the Kechoula discovery. After perforating a 16-ft interval at a measured depth of 4,612 ft, where the static pressure was measured at 98 bar, Sound Energy confirmed a producible gas accumulation. The company has temporarily suspended the well to prepare for a rigless extended well test. Drilled at the crest of the Kechoula discovery, the Koba well is close to infrastructure and will have good access to Morocco’s gas market.
