The Gazania-1 with Africa Energy

27 April 2021 Justin Cochrane

Africa will play host to around 7 High Impact Wells within the next 12 - 18 months, three of which will be within the Orange Sub-basin - one of the most exciting frontier basins worldwide to watch this year.

The Gazania-1 well - one of the three planned Orange Sub-basin wells - will target structurally trapped oil up-dip from the only oil discovery within the basin (A-J1). The well targets are both shallower than A-J1 and up-dip. The combination translates into a relatively low risk to geological success and potentially significant porosity improvements to those observed at A-J1.

Following success in another frontier basin in 2020, Africa Energy Corp's Principal Geophysicist Tobias Tonsing talks IHS Markit's Justin Cochrane, Director for African Regional Research, through the highly anticipated well.

Register to see part-two of the interview.

Justin Cochrane is a Technical Research Director for Upstream Energy at IHS Markit.
