Drilling Activity Summary


Melbana Energy is building a drillpad for a two-well drilling program in onshore Cuba’s in Block 9. The first planned well is #1-Alameda, and it is targeting resources with an assessed prospective resource of 141 MMbbl oil. The second proposed well is #1-Zapato, and it has an objective in the Motembo oil field – Cuba’s oldest oil field — that reportedly contained a very light oil (50°-64.5° API oil). There are no previous wells that have drilled deep enough to test the Zapato structure. Melbana is based in Melbourne, Victoria.
