Sound Energy hits Moroccan gas


RABAT, June 2, 2016 – Sound Energy hit gas at the TE6 well on its Tendrara site in Morocco, the UK exploration and development company confirmed today.

A total of 89 m of gas was identified and drilled to the vertical depths of 2,665 m. The company is setting the 4.5” tubing to ready the well for for testing. Given that the formation was hit 12 m above the previous TE5 well, Sound believes the well hit the top of the structure.


“Immediately after de-mobilisation, the company will proceed with the planned rigless operations to mechanically stimulate the reservoir followed by a well test,” the company said.

The demobilised rig will then drill the company’s TE7 well.

James Parsons, CEO of Sound Energy, has expressed hopes that the exploration is successful in hopes that the conpany can be bought out.
