Gas: at Loukos Onshore, Chariot starts the second phase of its drilling campaign

A few days after completing the drilling operations which proved unsuccessful at the RZK-1 well on the Gaufrette prospect, the British operator Chariot announced this Monday that it had started the second phase of its drilling program within the Loukos Onshore permit. .

The Dartois target has potential recoverable resources according to the best estimate of 12 billion cubic feet of gas, the company points out in a press release. The same Source specifies that the prospect targets a different trapping style from the Gaufrette prospect drilled by the RZK-1 well. So, according to Chariot, the success of this operation could potentially unlock a trend of prospects with combined potential recoverable resources at a best estimate of 20 billion cubic feet.

“We are pleased to begin our second well in this drilling campaign, having completed operations at Gaufrette. We are currently testing an independent prospect at Dartois, which is in a different reservoir channel and on strike from an existing gas discovery. “We look forward to providing an update on the results in due course,” commented Duncan Wallace, CTO of Chariot.

Acquired in August 2023, the Loukos license, held 75% by Chariot and 25% by Onhym, covers an approximate area of ​​1,371 km2 between Kénitra and Larache. It is adjacent to Chariot’s Lixus and Rissana offshore licenses, the former containing the major Anchois discovery gas development project.

On February 5, Chariot received approval of its environmental impact study (EIA) from the Unified Regional Investment Commission. The environmental permit approval covers a maximum of 20 wells in the Loukos Onshore area.
