Repsol groups adds Libya Murzuk light oil find

A group led by Repsol has added a light oil discovery on the 4,400 sq km NC 115 block in the Murzuk basin in the Sahara 800 km south of Tripoli, Libya.

The A1-129/02 discovery well flowed 528 b/d of 40° gravity oil on a 32/64-in. choke from perforations at 4,502-22 ft in the Ordovician Memouniat formation. Total depth is 1,836 m.

The well is the third of eight that the company will drill on the block. Repsol began an exploratory campaign on the block this year that will continue through the end of 2015.

Repsol operates NC 115 with a 40% stake. Austria’s OMV and Total of France have 30% each.
