Chariot’s subsidiary Enigma Oil & Gas has hired the ultra-deepwater semi-submersible drilling rig Maersk Deliverer to drill the Tapir South prospect.
The well, on Chariot’s 100%-owned Northern Block 1811A, holds gross unrisked mean prospective resources of 604 million barrels of oil, the London-listed company said on Tuesday.
Maersk’s unit is expected to arrive on site at the end of March and will be drilling in water depths of over 2100 metres to a total depth of 5100 metres at the well some 80 kilometres off Namibia.
Drilling is set to take two months.
The Maersk Deliverer will be coming from Block LB-9 off Liberia where it has just struck “significant oil” for African Petroleum Corporation at the Narina-1 wildcat.
Narina-1 hit combined net oil pay of 32 metres, registering 37-degree API crude in 27 net metres of a Turonian reservoir and 44-degree API oil in an Albian zone.
