Tlou Energy announced on 28 June that drilling of production wells is set to begin in Q3 following the arrival of a core drilling rig at the company’s Lesedi and Mamba coal bed methane (CBM) projects. The new production wells will be dual lateral wells intersecting a vertical well and located near the proposed central processing facility. Tlou is working with geological and drilling consultants to optimise production well design to enhance flow rates for the wells, which could provide sufficient gas for 2MW of power generation.
