Chariot has drilled a highly successful appraisal-cum-exploration well on its Anchois gas discovery in Morocco, the results from which exceeded pre-drill expectations and likely pave the way for a bigger-than-expected offshore project.

The Anchois-2 well in the Lixus licence — where Chariot has a 75% stake and is partnered by state-owned ONHYM — intercepted more than 100 metres of net pay in high quality reservoirs.
