LONDON -- In a mid-June drilling update, BowLeven Plc. reported it had reached the target depth on the D-1 exploration well on block MLHP 5 offshore Cameroon.
The primary objectives of the D-1 well were to explore the presence, extent, quality and fluid phase of Upper Miocene channelized turbidite sands, Bowleven said.
Initial logging indicated the well successfully intersected log-evaluated hydrocarbon bearing Miocene sands.
Well logging is underway, and preparations are being made for a drillstem test.
