    Heritage spuds Uganda's Semliki prospect

    (27/9/2002 - Oil &Gas International: Cairo) Heritage Oil said today it has commenced drilling its Turaco-1 exploration well on Uganda's Block 3 Semliki prospect. The spudding of this first probe in the prospect was delayed due to the onset of the rainy season and accompanying flooding.
    The well, being drilled with the Eagle Drill slimhole drilling rig, is scheduled for a total depth of 8,200 ft (2,500 meters) to be reached in approximately 45 days. Targeted are an estimated reservoir of some 300-450 million bbl of recoverable oil in the Middle Miocene Kisegi formation. Secondary target is the Nyaburogo formation in the Late Miocene to early Pliocene, thought to hold about 150-250 million bbl of oil.
    Heritage said the Turaco-1 is expected to encounter the pay in a series of stacked channel fill deposits. It is Uganda's second exploration well ever drilled, the first being a probe drilled in 1938 at Butiaba Waki.
    Heritage is the operator of Block 3, a 1.1 million acre tract. The company holds 50% interest in it, with the remaining 50% held by Energy Africa.

    Hardman are located in Block 2.
