Drilling Activity Summary


Serinus Energy announced that exploration well #1-Sancrail discovered gas. Continuous formation gas shows were recorded over 20 m of gross pay over four Pliocene sand intervals at 855-875 m. According to the company, the measured total gas over the interval ranged from 5.5% to 11.1% with an estimated average porosity of between 23% and 27%. The well was perforated in three zones before completion, but they have not been able to record gas flow from each selected zones. The well will be suspended pending further technical studies to better under-stand and evaluate the Sancrai structure. The test site is about 8 km south of the Moftinu Gas Development project.
