HOUSTON, Apr. 22
– Dana Gas Egypt let a contract under which Egyptian Chinese Drilling Co. Rig. 1 will drill as many as 10 wells in Al Baraka field, sole producing area in southern Egypt’s Kom Ombo basin.

The top drive-equipped rig is rated to 10,500 ft and is to spud Al Baraka-6 by the end of April. Al Baraka-5 will follow. The rig is capable of penetrating the basin’s entire geologic section, said 50% working interest owner Sea Dragon Energy Inc., Calgary.

The first appraisal well targets the Abu Ballas and Six Hills E and F zones. An extensive coring and logging program is planned to adequately evaluate all potential reservoirs.
