Orca Exploration announces the completion of the offshore workover and drilling program phase of its Songo Songo Main Field development programme

Orca Exploration Group Inc announces the successful completion of its offshore workover and drilling program (the "Off-Shore Programme") and the release of the Paragon M826 mobile drilling workover rig. The Off-Shore Programme of the Songo Songo Main Field development programme (the "development programme") included workovers on three existing wells (SS-5, SS-7 and SS-9) and the drilling of one new development well, SS-12. Phase 1 of the development programme also includes the completion of the SS-12 production platform, flowlines and tie-in facilities connecting SS-12 to the Company's gas processing facilities and a refrigeration system required to ensure field production stability to enable the Company to produce wells into the newly built National Natural Gas Infrastructure Project ("NNGIP"). The total cost of Phase 1 of the development programme was originally estimated to cost US$120 million, however, now that the Off-Shore Programme has been completed, the Company expects that Phase 1 of the development programme to have a total cost of under US$80 million with costs incurred to date of approximately US$68 million. The reduction in costs was a result of being able to successfully workover the three wells without having to do any side-tracking, efficiencies achieved during the work-overs, and work scope changes which reduced the original estimated time required to complete Phase 1. The full development programme provides for additional workovers, compression systems and additional infrastructure to ensure all production commitments are met through to the end of the licence in 2026.
