Initiation of the re-completion of the BHN-1 well, which had been on hold pending the extension approval, is expected to begin soon, the companies said jointly.

The programme will entail pulling the existing production tubing from the wellbore and re-perforating the Abiod formation using a casing gun and deep penetrating charges, followed by selective acidisation of the individual perforation intervals. It is expected that the rig contracted to undertake the re-completion will commence mobilisation soon.

John Nelson, CEO of Africa Hydrocarbons, said, “We are pleased the extension approval has now been granted and all necessary permits for the re-completion operation can now be attained. We look forward to the start of the re-completion operation and determining the hydrocarbon potential of the BHN-1 well.”
