Mozambique: Dry well onshore for Anadarko
Operator Anadarko has failed to find hydrocarbons with the Kifaru-1 well on the Rovuma Onshore concession. Partner Wentworth Resources said Kifaru-1 was drilled to a total depth of 3,100 metres in Eocene-age rocks. The well encountered all targeted zones in the Miocene, Oligocene and Eocene formations but failed to find an economic reservoir and, as a result, the well has been plugged and abandoned. The well completes the partners’ drilling obligations for the block. The preceding well on the block, Tembo-1, found 11 metres of gas pay in December, and the partners are evaluating their options.
