Maputo, Mozambique, 14 Oct – Norwegian oil company Detnosk Oil (DNO) may drill two more test wells as part of its oil and gas surveys in the Inhaminga block, a source from Mozambique’s National Oil Institute (INP) told Macauhub.

Three wells have so far been drilled in the Inhaminga oil block since DNO was granted the concession, although the source gave no details of investments made so far.

“They are working in the field, they are carrying out the seismic survey and based on that they may drill two more wells,” the source said Tuesday.

The first two wells, according to the source, provided negative results and, currently findings from the third well are under analysis.

The Inhaminga block, located in the central province of Sofala, is made up of a vast area that includes the districts of Cheringoma, Caia, Gorongosa and Marínguè. (macauhub)
