Luiperd roars offshore South Africa for Total
Total has tested the Luiperd-1X well at a maximum rate of 9,820 barrels of oil equivalent per day, limited by surface equipment.
Africa Energy, a junior partner, reported the results. The company said partners had tested the well at different choke settings and reached a maximum rate of 33 million cubic feet per day of gas and 4,320 bpd of condensate. They reached these results on a 58/64” choke. It expects the absolute flow rate of the well to be “significantly higher” than reported results, it said.
“The Luiperd discovery proves that the Outeniqua Basin offshore South Africa is a world-class hydrocarbon province that remains highly under-explored,” said Africa Energy’s VP exploration Jan Maier. The Luiperd-1X found 85 metres of gross sands. Of this, 73 metres was net good quality pay in the target interval.
