Scots oil exploration company Bowleven has begun drilling operations on the Moambe exploration well on the Bomono Permit in Cameroon.
Moambe, the second well in a two-well programme, is located just over two kilometres east of the first well, Zingana. The onshore well will be drilled to an estimated target depth of 1,620 metres.
Petrophysical evaluation on the Zingana discovery well is continuing and the well has been suspended to enable future re-entry and testing.
Bowleven, intends to drill, log and evaluate both wells prior to determining any testing plan.
