HOUSTON, June 22
– Dominion Petroleum Ltd., Hamilton, Bermuda, said its Uganda unit has spud the Ngaji-1 exploratory well, first well in the Lake Edward basin in southwestern Uganda.

The well is projected to 2,000 m on Exploration Area 4B at a location the company deemed best to test the basin’s geology and identify elements of a working petroleum system.

The block adjoins the border with Congo (former Zaire), in which the majority of the basin and its potential reside. Block interests are Dominion 95% and Alpha Oil 5%.
