TransGlobe Energy Corporation Announces Test Results For Oil Discovery In Egypt

TransGlobe Energy Corporation has announced the test results for the South Ghazalat 6X oil discovery.

As announced on November 8th, 2018, TransGlobe drilled the SGZ 6X exploration well to a total depth of 5,195 feet and cased the well as a potential Bahariya light oil discovery. Subsequently, the company tested three intervals in the Bahariya formation and tested a combined 3,840 barrels per day (bbl/d) of light oil from the upper and lower Bahariya.

The lower Bahariya formation flowed naturally at an average rate of 2,437 bbl/d of light (38 API) oil, 21 bbl/d of water and 1.4 million cubic feet of natural gas per day on a 40/64 inch choke from a 42 foot perforated interval. A total of 918 bbl of oil and 7 bbl of water were produced during the 10 hour test.
