Solo Oil announced Tuesday that its assets in Tanzania represent the most significant investments for the company and revealed that their further development “is being actively pursued”.
The company has a 25 percent stake in the Ruvuma PSA and acquired a 6.5 percent interest in the Kiliwani North Development License in February 2015, with an option to purchase an additional 6.5 percent interest within 30 days of the signature of a gas sales agreement for the produced gas from the KNDL. Solo’s key asset in the Ruvuma PSA is the Ntorya gas-condensate discovery, made in 2012. Ntorya is estimated to contain a gross 158 billion cubic feet of proven gas in place. The Kiliwani North-1 well in the KNDL was drilled by Aminex and its partners in 2008 and discovered gas in a 196 foot column in the Lower Cretaceous. Based on well test results Kiliwani North-1 is expected to be flowed at a rate of up to 30 million cubic feet per day once on-stream.
