Although commercial production in excess of 100,000 barrels to date has been recovered from the TT2 discovery well, the majority of the net pay and oil in place is in rock with permeabilities below 1 millidarcy and will require a fracture stimulation to produce oil at commercial rates.
We recently received fast track analysis of a number of sidewall cores across the Caley reservoir section of the Roc-1 well that show permeabilities are substantially better than the 10 millidarcy (mD) to 100mD we reported in January 2016.
Mobility observations during pressure testing indicate good quality reservoir with inferred permeability in the range from 10 to 100 millidarcy.
