Last night, Woodside was running wireline logs over the Colin-1 exploration well in PSC Area A, before undertaking plugging and abandoning operations.

Located 60km from the Chinguetti development, the Colin prospect was a stratigraphically-trapped, incised canyon sand system with amplitude support. Before spudding, the partners believed the prospect had the potential to contain about 170 million barrels of recoverable oil.

The Atwood Hunter drill rig will now relocate to drill the Dana-operated exploration well, Flamant-1 (Block 8).

Participants in Colin-1 and PSC A Block 3 are Woodside (operator with a 53.846% stake), Hardman (24.3%), BG Group (13.084%), Fusion Mauritania (3%), Premier Oil (1.615%) and Roc Oil (4.155%).

The Block 8 joint venture comprises Gaz de France UK B.V (31%), Wintershall AG (25%), Dana Petroleum (24%), Hardman (18%), Roc Oil (2%).
