Niger: Savannah announces fifth discovery

Issue 378 - 12 Oct 2018 | 3 minute read

The UK’s Savannah Petroleum has announced a fifth oil discovery in the Agadem Basin with the Zomo-1 well and will now halt drilling until early next year. Savannah plans to submit a prefeasibility study for a proposed early production system (EPS) to the Ministry of Petroleum by 6 November, then carry out a well test on the Amdigh-1 well. Production from the planned EPS will start in early 2019, centred on the Amdigh field. Crude oil will be transported 120km to the Jaouro Export Station (JES), initially by truck, for delivery into the 463km Agadem-Zinder crude oil pipeline to the Société de Raffinage de Zinder (Soraz) refinery.
