Africa Oil Announces Commencement of Drilling on Erut Prospect in Kenya

Oil and Gas - Dec 19, 2016

Africa Oil Corp. is pleased to announce the resumption of drilling on Block 13T in Kenya. The Erut-1 well, which spudded on December 18th, is located on a large structural feature in the northern part of the South Lokichar basin and is intended as a follow up well to the successful Etom-2 well which discovered 102m of net pay that had some of the best reservoir characteristics seen to date in the basin. This is the first well in a firm four well program, with the potential for an additional four contingent follow on wells, which is expected to continue through the first half of 2017.

Africa Oil CEO Keith Hill commented, "We are excited to get back to drilling and particularly interested in the first two wells in the program which will test exploration prospects in the northern portion of the Lokichar Basin opened up by the Etom discovery. These wells, and the follow up appraisal wells at Amosing and Ngamia, are important steps in moving the Lokichar development project forward.
