Tlou Energy Limited, the ASX, AIM and BSE listed firm centered on delivering energy in Botswana and southern Africa by way of the event of coal mattress methane (‘CBM’), has efficiently accomplished the drilling of the Lesedi three growth pod at its CBM venture in Botswana.
• Lateral wells Lesedi 3A and Lesedi 3B have been efficiently accomplished with each wells intersecting with the vertical effectively Lesedi 3P to finish the Lesedi three growth pod.
• Dewatering and gasoline circulation testing at Lesedi three will start following the set up of manufacturing gear.
• The drill rig is being moved to the second deliberate manufacturing pod, Lesedi four.
Pilot effectively drilling program
The Company commenced drilling of growth wells at its gasoline discipline in late 2018. The wells are being drilled as ‘twin lateral pods’, comprising a single vertical manufacturing effectively intersected by two lateral wells. The lateral wells are being drilled by way of the gassy coal seam with gasoline extracted from this coal produced by way of the vertical manufacturing effectively the place it may be gathered and used for energy technology. Pod One is designated ‘Lesedi three’ and includes a vertical manufacturing effectively (‘Lesedi 3P’) and two lateral wells (‘Lesedi 3A’ & ‘Lesedi 3B’). Pod Two is designated ‘Lesedi four’,
The Company can affirm that drilling operations at Lesedi three have been accomplished. Lateral effectively Lesedi 3A was drilled ~1,437m Measured Depth (MD) and Lesedi 3B was drilled ~1,440m MD with each lateral wells efficiently intersecting with vertical effectively Lesedi 3P to finish the twin lateral pod. Lesedi three is now being ready for set up of manufacturing services previous to the graduation of de-watering and decreasing of the strain within the coal seam to realize gasoline circulation.
The drilling rig is being moved to start drilling of the second deliberate growth pod, Lesedi four.
If outcomes are constructive, these wells will type a part of the Company’s preliminary gas-to-power venture which is able to embrace set up of transmission traces and grid connection.
The Lesedi CBM Project is essentially the most superior venture in Tlou’s portfolio. The Company holds 10 Prospecting Licences masking an space of ~eight,300Km2 and the Lesedi Project already advantages from important, independently licensed Contingent Gas Resources of ~three.2 trillion cubic ft (3C) and independently licensed Gas Reserves. Operations have been ongoing since 2007. (Source and picture: Tlou Energy)
