ROME -- Eni and Sonangol have hit pay with the Mpungi-1 well, offshore Angola.

The block 15/06 well drilled to 2,300 m (7,545 ft) TD and encountered oil pay in both the Upper and the Middle Miocene sand reservoirs. The well flowed light oil at an equipment-restricted rate of 6,000 b/d during production tests of the main pool.

Mpungi-1 is the eighth exploration well drilled by the joint venture since it was awarded the block at the end of 2006. It is the seventh discovery in the area and it completes the block’s minimum work obligations.
