Taza 2 is located 10 kilometres north-west of Taza 1 and is designed to appraise the hydrocarbon-bearing intervals discovered by Taza 1

During the week, having seen encouraging hydrocarbon shows towards the base of the previously drilled section, a further 102 metres was drilled to the final total depth of 4,200 metres.

Wireline logs are currently being acquired over the new section of hole and preparations are underway for a comprehensive testing programme, likely to comprise drill stem tests over up to five intervals.

Taza 2 is located 10 kilometres north-west of Taza 1 and is designed to appraise the hydrocarbon-bearing intervals discovered by Taza 1 (Jeribe/Dhiban and Euphrates/Kirkuk Formations), as well as explore deeper Tertiary and Cretaceous targets including the Shiranish Formation.
