SDX Energy said it had made a gas discovery at a well in Morocco.
The ONZ-7 well was drilled to a total depth of 1,167 meters with 5 meters of net conventional natural gas pay in the Hoot formation.
The well came in on prognosis but reservoir quality exceeded initial expectations, encountering porosity in the pay section of 35.3%.
"The well will now be completed, tested and connected to existing infrastructure," SDX said.
It expects to provide a further update on testing results in early February.
