TotalEnergies, the operator of Block 2913B offshore Namibia has disclosed that Mangetti-1X exploration well has intersected hydrocarbon-bearing intervals in the Mangetti fan prospect, a separate system to the Venus oil discovery. Mangetti-1X also achieved its secondary objective of successfully intersecting and appraising the northern area of the Venus accumulation. Mangetti has the potential to add additional recoverable resources on Block 2913B, and the joint venture partners are working to determine the next step in the evaluation process.

The acquisition of 3D seismic in the southern area of Block 2913B, is progressing with the aim of evaluating additional drilling targets.

“The positive results of the Mangetti-1X well  present us with a new fairway opportunity, potentially adding a new recoverable resource base on Block 2913B. Our involvement in Block 2913B continues to be exciting, with further work underway to understand the potential of Mangetti, alongside the Venus-2A appraisal well, currently drilling,” Africa Oil President and CEO, Roger Tucker said.
