SDX Energy Inc. seeks to increase its Moroccan gas sales volumes by as much as 50% and its reserves by more than 100% with its nine-well drilling campaign in the Sebou, Gharb Centre, and Lall Mimouna permits.
The operator spudded the KSR-14 development well, the first in its campaign, in the Sebou permit onshore northeast Morocco. SDX expects to announce drilling results in mid-October. If successful, the company plans to complete, flow test, and connect to existing systems in 30 days. Paul Welch, president of SDX, said this was the company’s first well in Morocco. Welch also commented on the company’s progress in the Nile Delta’s South Disouq concession in Egypt. The company plans to drill the Kelvin-1X and Bragg-1X exploration wells.
In June, SDX’s partner IDR Inc., with 45% working interest, reported the discovery of the Phase I commitment well, SD-1X, tested 25.8 MMcfd and 43 bbl of condensate on a 48/64-in. choke. The gas-condensate discovery was in the Abu Maadi formation at 7,100 ft (OGJ Online, June 5, 2017).
