    World class source rock
    By: jimmy24

    Chariot updated their fact sheet on their website and now report "world class source rock" at the k1 well drilled on the nimrod prospect.

    We now also have two wells in the walvis basin which encountered great oil source rocks and well provided mobile oil samples.

    It's just a matter of time before there is an oil discovery. With giant structures and prospects this is not an area the majors will overlook.

      I estimate the moose head drill will spud in about a week to ten days.

      We now know from chariots website that the adjoining block contained world class source rock, which I believe was not buried deeply enough in block 2714 a, but should be buried deeply at the moosehead well location.

      There are three stacked reservoir sections in moosehead which form part of a huge four way dip anticline. So structure should not be a problem . The nearby kudu gas field has a complex and inconsistent reservoir in it's main sand reservoir, however hrt are targeting a barremian carbonate reservoir, similar to the Brazilian Tupi field I believe, so fingers crossed they get it right this time.

      This next well will be important to chariot to prove the presence of mature oil source rocks which can also charge potential reservoirs in chariots block 2714b.
