Casing has been set and the plan is to drill ahead to evaluate the reservoir at Antelope-5. After reaching total depth it is planned to conduct an extended well test at Antelope-5 with pressure gauges monitoring pressure drawdown in other appraisal wells.

This type of test gives a better idea of reservoir connectivity and productivity.

Antelope-5 is about 1.8 kilometres from Antelope-3 and is appraising the western extent of the Elk-Antelope field.
