Between Q2 2016 to date Tullow has successfully struck oil in 8 wells maintaining a 95% success rate. Each had 100 meters of net oil pay just like Ngamia 1. However they haven't released the results of the appraisals which has to independently verified by industry experts. So i don't believe on the small 1 bilion barrels count for now until all the data is out. Emekuya-1 is located 2.5 kilometres north of Etom-2 where the firm encountered 102 metres of net oil pay in two columns in 2015/FILE By KENNEDY KANGETHE, NAIROBI, Kenya, May 17 – Kenya’s oil export prospects have been boosted following Tullow Oil new discovery of more crude oil in the South Lokichar basin. “The Emekuya-1 exploratory appraisal well has made an important discovery in the northern part of the South Lokichar Basin. This well has proven oil charge across a significant part of the Greater Etom structure and we are very encouraged by the quality and particularly the regional extent of the reservoir,” says Angus McCoss, Exploration Director at Tullow Oil. Emekuya-1 is located 2.5 kilometres north of Etom-2 where the firm encountered 102 metres of net oil pay in two columns in 2015.The firm says the down hole pressure measurements and fluid samples suggest that the main oil reservoir is of the same static pressure gradient as the Etom-2 well which demonstrates that a major part of the Greater Etom structure is oil-filled. The well was drilled by the PR Marriott Rig-46 to a total measured depth of 1,356 metres and penetrated reservoir quality Miocene sandstones which correlate to those seen in the successful Etom-2 well. Tullow operates Blocks 13T and 10BB with 50 percent equity and has partnered with Africa Oil Corporation and Maersk Oil both with 25 percent. Tullow Oil has so far successfully completed of Erut 1, Amosing 6 and Ngamia 10. The firm has announced that it encountered 75 metres of net oil pay in two zones at Emekuya-1 well in Block 13T pushing the estimated crude oil reserves in the South Lokichar Basin to 750 million barrels.
