French oil and gas firm has provided updates on its activities in Nigeria and Gabon.

In Nigeria, the operated production levels (oil + condensate) varied between 15,000boepd and 30,000 boepd (with 20.25% attributable to the company) during the fourth quarter of 2010.

The gas production is currently 95 million cubic feet per day, according to the company.

The wells in the Onal AEE, Gabon, have shown a height respectively impregnated with oil of 32m on OMOC-103 m and 9m on OMOC-N-501.

The drilling of these wells, targeting the Kissenda Sandstone (Gres du Kissenda), is part of the OMOC-North field delineation program, which, in addition to the discovery well (OMOC-N-101), included plans to drill six appraisal wells.

The findings from these wells confirm that the reserves extend into the Kissenda on this part of the field where the production of the wells should be 500boepd in average.

Maurel & Prom owns 100% of the interests in these two fields, on which the company Tulipe Oil has a 15% back-in right, which would take Maurel & Prom’s interest down to 85%.
