Completion of Pilot Well Lagia #14

Efora, the South African based independent oil and gas company, is pleased to provide the following update on its wholly owned and operated operations at the Lagia field in Egypt.

Further to the update provided on 29 November regarding the spudding of the Lagia #14 pilot well, Efora is pleased to announce that drilling operations on the well have successfully and safely concluded on time and on budget.

The well intersected 98 ft of Nukhul Zone 3, the main hydrocarbon bearing interval in the Lagia field. The well was logged and perforated by the 1st of December and is undergoing cleaning operations whilst the surface pipeline network is being hooked up for steam injection ahead of the well being placed on production later this month. The technical team will monitor the production data over the coming months to establish the optimum forward development strategy for the wider Lagia field.
