Norwegian company Interoil Exploration and Production has announced that the Turaco-1 well in the Altair licence has tested oil in the upper section of the C7 formation.

The Turaco-1 well has been finalized and logs from selected sections of the C7 Formation, tested to measure the petrophysical properties. The well proved oil in the upper section of the C7 Formation (5742 - 5746 ft MD). Tests will continue with slickline, to determine the size of the oil accumulation to evaluate commerciality and further development. The lower section C7 (5915 - 5919 ft MD), produced 100% water.

Mobilisation to Vikingo Well

SLS (the farm in partner for the drilling campaign) is now 'rigging down' in Altair to mobilize the equipment to LLA-47 - the Vikingo well. Estimated mobilisation time is 12 days.
