SDX Energy PLC spud the Ksiri-21 well in Sebou Central of Gharb basin, Morocco.
The vertical development well will be drilled to a planned total depth of about 1,950 m. Using existing 3D seismic, the well is targeting a well-defined prospect within the main Hoot formation, which is the main producing sand in the area.
SDX has drilled over 20 production wells in the same basin. As such, this new well presents a low-risk step-out location. The well can be immediately brought into production, the company said.
SDX has a 75% operated working interest across a Moroccan portfolio which includes the Sebou Central, Gharb Occidental, Moulay Bouchta Ouest, and Lalla Mimouna Sud exploration permits, plus several exploitation concessions containing producing wells.
