Oil services company Schlumberger has secured a contract from Anglo African Oil and Gas’ subsidiary Petro Kouilou to provide support services for the drilling of the TLP-103 well on the Tilapia oil field in the prolific Lower Congo Basin.
Anglo African noted that drilling operations at the well are set to start in June.
Under the terms of the contract, Schlumberger will provide services such as mud logging services, wireline, drilling and completion fluids / WBCO, casing accessories, cementing services, as well as drilling bits.
The company will also offer casing liner hanger, completion BHA components, TCP (perforating guns), completion equipment and qualified engineers, as well as DST operations.
Anglo African Oil and Gas executive chairman David Sefton said: “I am very pleased that the team both in the Congo and London continues to make excellent progress in executing on the development of the asset.
“In particular, we now have certainty on all material contractors for drilling TLP-103 and so can move with confidence into the final stages of planning for this key new well.”
With the deal, the company has now secured all the supporting personnel and services required to complete the drilling of TLP-103.
The multi-horizon well will target producing reservoirs and an 8.1m barrel gross contingent resource discovery.
TLP-103 is also expected to evaluate a deeper prospect, which has been assigned 58.4m barrels of gross prospective resources.
