SDX Energy PLC will tie in gas from the SD-5X exploration well which targeted the Warda prospect in the South Disouq development lease onshore Egypt.
The well was spudded Mar. 4 and reached TD at 7,855 ft MD on Mar. 16 (OGJ Online Mar. 8, 2022). The primary basal Kafr El Sheikh target was encountered at 6,973 ft MD and discovered 55.5 ft of net pay gas sand with an average porosity of 26.3%, in line with pre-drill estimates.
The well will be completed, tested, and tied-in via the existing SD-4X flow-line to the central processing infrastructure. It is estimated that the well will be on production in June 2022.
SD-5X is the first of three wells to be drilled in South Disouq this year. The second, SD-12 East on Sobhi field, is expected to spud mid-April and will target an estimated gross unrisked P50 EUR of 7 bcf. That well will be followed by MA-1X (Mohsen), targeting an estimated gross unrisked P50 EUR of 21 bcf. Mohsen is planned to spud mid-to-late May.
SDX is operator of South Disouq (55%) and has 36.85% working interest in SD-5X.
