Anchois offshore Morocco emerging as major gas discovery

Chariot has achieved strong results from its Anchois-2 appraisal well on the Lixus license offshore Morocco.

LONDON – Chariot has achieved strong results from its Anchois-2 appraisal well on the Lixus license offshore Morocco.

Early assessment of data from the well, drilled by the semisubmersible Stena Don in 381 m (1,250 ft) water depth, indicates significant gas accumulations in the appraisal and exploration objectives.

Net gas pay appears to be more than 100 m (328 ft), compared to 55 m (180 ft) in the original Anchois-1 discovery well drilled by in 2010 by then-operator Dana Petroleum.

Appraisal target gas sand B has estimated net gas pay totaling more than 50 m (164 ft) in two stacked reservoirs of similar thickness. The upper reservoir is a continuation of the reservoir drilled in Anchois-1.

The sands C, M, and O exploration targets delivered gas in multiple intervals over a gross interval of 250 m (820 ft), with no water-bearing reservoirs identified.

And although Anchois-2 was not designed to assess the previously discovered Gas Sand A, the well did encounter gas-bearing sands at this level.

The results could have positive implications on the scale of the proposed gas development, Chariot added, as well as de-risking other exploration prospects with similar seismic attributes in the Lixus license area.

The Stena Don will suspend Anchois-2 for potential future re-entry and completion as a production well before performing re-entry of Anchois-1. The aims here are to assess the integrity of that well and potentially preserve it as another future producer.

Adonis Pouroulis, acting CEO of Chariot, described the findings to date as potentially “transformational” for the company. State-owned ONHYM is the other partner in the license.
