Despite disappointment, FAR has an oil show that “confirms the existence of abundant oil sources in the area” at several target intervals in the well, and oil shows added at both. A2 and A5 blocks have shown that they have the opportunity to explore material and open a running room.

“The drilling work for the Bambo-1 well and the Bambo-1 ST1 sidetrack well was carried out safely and within a modified budget. In line with the well abandonment program planned for this type of exploration, the well. The side truck is blocked and abandoned. Well. ” FAR using the StenaIceMax drillship said.

Bambo-1 and Sidetrack have confirmed that all the necessary oil system elements are present in the region, and the technical team is already busy integrating new data with advanced prospects. ”

“The drilling conditions for the Bambo-1 well had some technical challenges, but the well and sidetrack operations were completed safely and within the revised budget. Exceed and Stena drilling teams with FAR Thank you for your cooperation. Complete this program. “” FAR is the next step in working with its partners Petronas and the Government of Gambia to realize the exploration potential of the country. I look forward to working on it. ”
