Congo (former Zaire): Dual oil show well quit

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 17
-- SOCO International PLC has plugged and abandoned the Bayingu-1 exploratory well on the Nganzi block onshore Congo (former Zaire).

The well, 35 miles inland from Cabinda’s Malongo terminal, encountered oil and gas shows in the primary and secondary reservoir targets. Reservoir sands at the primary Lower Bucomazi target were poorly developed, and the residual nature of the oil shows in the secondary Chela formation indicates lack of closure at this location.
