Invictus To Deepen Well To Further Test Potential

Invictus To Deepen Well To Further Test Potential

Invictus Energy Limited has elected to deepen the Mukuyu-1 well to test its further potential after reaching targetted depth of at least 3.5 kilometers last week.

The Australia-headquartered firm is exploring oil and gas in Muzarabani in the Zambezi Valley.

In an update on Friday, Invictus managing director Scott Macmillan said the Exalo Rig 202 was preparing to drill further down to 3.8 kilometres, to test the deeper potential of the remaining Upper Angwa and Lower Angwa formations. He said:

Preliminary logging analysis from this early stage of the wireline programme in the current 8½ hole section has been encouraging, indicating multiple potential gas-bearing zones.

However, the presence of moveable hydrocarbons will be determined following the wireline formation testing programme, which will be run following the arrival of the wireline formation testing tool at the well site.

In the interim, we have elected to drill ahead to test the deeper potential of the remaining Upper Angwa and Lower Angwa formations, which will also provide us with valuable geological and geophysical information for future wells in the basin.

We anticipate the remaining activities will require a further 5 -7 days to complete following which final well results will be provided.

Soon after drilling Mukuyu 1, a second well, the Baobab, will be sunk down to 1.5 km, with both exercises set to give a better idea of the full extent of the reserves in the Muzarabani prospect following the collection of more than 800 km of seismic data in 2021. | New Ziana

Zinbabwe may fail to get oil here and come out with gas only. If it comes out in that way, citizens will still accept it because half a loaf is better than nothing.

I am suspicious that they may have tofailed to get oil after drilling 3.5 kilometres. Therefore, they decided to add 300 metres. Or they have already gotten oil and drilling further is wanting to see how deep it goes. Citizens must continue crossing their fingers.

Oil is there but the reality is that, oil is associated with curse in Africa. You shall see it with your eyes but you will never enjoy it. A lot still needs to be done to safeguard your precy liquid before it's too for thought!!

Aren't they special tools used to detect minerals in the Earth's crust which are accurate which state the axact geographical location which is precise with proper Research so that extraction of minerals like oil 🛢️will not cost us .......?

It's funny how many Zimbabweans can be so negative about their own country. Hanzi deepening to see further potential, it's just 3.5km drilled and will be drilled further till hameno. That invictus oil deal we're getting full updates, unlike any other deals... Sure that's something positive. Mashoko angu ekupedzisira let's do away with the "Hopewell chin'ono syndrome" yekungoona zvakashata zvaitwa. Paitwa chakanaka, appreciate!!!
