WEST PERTH, Australia – African Petroleum Corp. Ltd. has begun the Narina 1 well on block LB-09 offshore Liberia with the Maersk Deliverer semisubmersible drilling rig.

The well targets a Turonian prospect that APC estimates to hold potential recoverable oil of 500 to 1,200 MMbbl, and follows drilling of the Apalis 1 well in 2011 in the same block.

CEO Karl Thompson said: “Apalis 1, the first well in deepwater offshore Liberia, proved a working hydrocarbon system in the basin and our second well will target Turonian sands similar to the oil bearing reservoirs in Ghana and Sierra Leone.”
