Rovuma Onshore Concession

  • Primarily onshore, north-eastern Mozambique bordering the Rovuma River to the north and extending east into the Indian Ocean
  • Concession area west of and adjacent to Anadarko's Offshore Area 1 concession (estimated gas resources of 45-70 Tcf)
  • Exploration History - 4 wells drilled to date:
    • Mocimboa-1: Oil and gas shows in Cretaceous age turbidites
    • Mecupa-1: Tertiary gas shows
    • Tembo-1 (drilled in 2014): Gas and condensate shows in the Cretaceous – Petrophysical analysis of the Cretaceous section indicates 11 meters of natural gas net pay with a notice of discovery filed with the Mozambique government in December 2014
    • Kifaru-1 (drilling in 2015): Encountered all targeted zones in the Miocene, Oligocene and Eocene formations but failed to find an economic reservoir
    • Extensive 2D seismic including 1,016km acquired in 2012/13
  • During Q3 2015 Wentworth informed the Mozambique government of an intention to appraise the natural gas discovery in the Tembo-1 well and plan to work with the Rovuma Onshore Block partners to determine an appraisal plan.
