– Victoria Oil & Gas PLC, London, encountered overpressured shale gas in a thick interval at an appraisal well in undeveloped Logbaba gas-condensate field on the outskirts of Douala, Cameroon.

The La-105 well went to TD 8,920 ft and also cut more than 300 ft of gross pay in multiple gas-bearing sands at virgin pressures at 6,017 ft to 8,330 ft. The sands can be correlated to those found and tested decades ago in the La-103 well, which flowed at rates of 5-12 MMcfd from individual sands.

After drilling the La-106 well, the company plans to build a gas processing plant. The field’s pay intervals are in Upper Cretaceous Logbaba sands. Victoria Oil & Gas ran a passive seismic survey over the field in 2009.
