Ophir and its JV partners, BG Tanzania (Shell) and Pavilion Energy, conclude drilling of two exploration wells offshore Tanzania

The programme comprised Kitatange-1 in Block 1 and Bunju-1 in Block 4. After evaluation, Shell, the operator of Blocks 1 and 4, has confirmed that good quality reservoir was encountered in both wells, however hydrocarbons were not found.

The Noble Globetrotter 2 rig has been demobilised from site. The two wells fulfil the final exploration commitments as per the exploration licences issued by the Ministry of Energy and Minerals (MEM).

Subsequent to the completion of drilling Kitatange-1, a bridging licence has been awarded for the existing discovery Locations in Block 1.
