With the receipt of coiled tubing, the company will work to start a programme of unstimulated tests, followed by stimulated flow tests.
TE-10 is the second in a three well exploration programme in the Greater Tendrara area, onshore Morocco.
Earlier this month, Sound confirmed an important milestone for the Tendrara gas project.
Schlumberger converted its interest in the Anoual permits, part of the Tendrara exploration venture, into a direct stake in the project. As a result of the procedural milestone, Sound’s project equity stake amounts to 47.5% alongside Schlumberger with 27.5%, and Moroccan state vehicle ONHYM holding the remaining 25%.
It concludes the process across all the component parts of the Greater Tendrara project area, all of which is now 27.5% owned by Schlumberger. Meanwhile, the process is ongoing to convert Schlumberger’s interest in the TE-5 Horst discovery into a direct stake.
