The oil and gas exploration company announced, Tuesday, June 23, that it intends to launch the tests on the LMS-2 deposit in the Lalla Mimouna (Kenitra) permit at the end of the 3rd quarter or at the beginning of the 4th quarter 2020. “The post-drilling analysis of LMS-2 at Lalla Mimouna identified similarities with the discovery at the LAM-1 well made by the previous operator of the concession in 2015,” said SDX Energy.
The British company also claims that the LMS-2 well could contain 1.5 billion cubic feet of gas. “An additional 6 billion cubic feet could be secured in separate areas with the same characteristic”, in addition to an additional 3.4 billion cubic feet of potential resources if the tests are successful”.
In total, the concession could generate 10.9 billion cubic feet. The LMS-2 deposit will be tested after the restrictions imposed by Covid19 in Morocco have allowed the perforation and test teams to return to the country. In addition to the 10.9 billion cubic feet of potential resources that could be secured in the LMS-2 deposit, management has identified 25.5 billion cubic feet of additional potential resources in multiple areas of interest from the same concession.
