Tendrara : TE-7 Bottom Hole Pressure and TE-8 Location

Sound Energy, the African and European focused upstream gas company, is pleased to provide an update on the Company's Tendrara licence, onshore Morocco.

Further to the Company's announcement of 24 November 2016, the Company has retrieved the TE-7 bottom hole memory gauges following the open hole well test and can confirm that the reservoir pressure correlates with the gas gradient recorded at all previous wells on the structure.  

The Company also confirms that the TE-8 vertical and side-track locations have been finalized some 12 kilometres to the Northeast of TE-7, subject only to consent of the Company's partners. TE-8, the first outpost well at Tendrara, is expected to spud in February 2017 and will drill both the TAGI and the Palaeozoic horizons. The Company's current internal estimates are that success at TE-8 would establish best estimate original gas in place at Tendrara of upto 1.5 Tcf gross. Prior to the drilling of TE-8, the Company internally estimates best estimate original gas in place volume of between 0.3 Tcf and 0.5 Tcf gross. Sound Energy, with its 27.5% interest in the Tendrara licence, intends to commission a Competent Persons Report on Tendrara following TE-8, which will confirm the contingent resources based on the field development plan. 

The extended well test at TE-7 is ongoing and is expected to confirm production sustainability and aid field development planning. 

This announcement is inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
