Invictus Energy Limited says  the Exalo Rig 202 drilled the 17 1/2 surface hole section down to a depth of approximately 496m Measured Depth (“MD”) on the Mukuyu-2 well at its 80% owned and controlled Cabora Bassa Project in Zimbabwe.

On September 21 this year, the company began drilling at Mukuyu-2, marking a key milestone in the high-impact Cabora Bassa Basin exploration programme. The well will be drilled to a total depth of 3,750 metres.

Mukuyu-2 drilling and assessment is expected to take 50-60 days.

The company update said that, ” Since the last update, the Exalo Rig 202 has drilled the 17 1⁄2 surface hole section down to a depth of approximately 496m Measured Depth (“MD”). The 13 3⁄8 inch casing has been set in place and the blow out preventer (BOP) stack successfully installed, with drilling of the intermediate 12 1⁄4 inch hole section commenced.”

The Rig 202 will continue to drill in the 12 1/4 inch intermediate hole section through the Dande and Forest targets to a planned total section depth of approximately 2,040m MD within the Pebbly Arkose formation before running a wireline logging evaluation suite and setting the 9 58″ casing, according to the company.

Following the installation of the 9 5/8″ casing, the rig will drill ahead in the 8 1/2″ hole section through the reminder of the Pebbly Arkose to the primary targets in the Upper Angwa (Alternations Member) and the Lower Angwa (Massive Member) to approximately 3 750 metres MD before executing a wireline logging evaluation suite.
