Cairn: Second Successful Senegal Appraisal Well
Cairn is pleased to announce the successful testing of the SNE-3 appraisal well offshore Senegal. Operations have been safely and successfully completed following drilling, coring, logging and drill-stem testing (DST). The well is now being plugged and abandoned. Cairn’s analysis of the extensive dataset collected is continuing with initial results as follows:

- Two drill stem tests were conducted within the Upper Reservoirs, confirming the deliverability of these units;
. DST 1a flowed at a maximum rate of ~5,400 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and a main flow rate of ~4,000 bopd over a 24 hour period from a 15 metre (m) zone
. For DST 1b an additional zone of 5.5m was added and a combined maximum rate of ~5,200 bopd measured, with an associated main flow rate of ~4,500 bopd over a six hour period
. Both main flow periods utilised a 56/64” choke
- Multiple samples of oil and gas recovered to surface from wireline logs and drill stem tests
- Confirmation of similar reservoir quality and correlation of the principal reservoir units between SNE-1, SNE-2 and SNE-3
- 144m of continuous core taken across the entire reservoir interval with 100% recovery
- Similar oil-down-to and oil-up-to depths seen in SNE-1 and SNE-2 – 101m gross (95m in SNE-1 and 103m in SNE-2)
- Initial indications confirm the same 32 degree API oil quality as seen in SNE-1 and SNE-2

Resource estimates for the SNE field continue to be revised and an update will be announced at the company’s preliminary results on 15 March 2016.
