    Tower Resources announced that in Feb-2014 Repsol plans to drill the Welwitschia-1 well in License 0010, Walvis Basin, offshore Namibia. 

    Repsol has secured a three year contract for the new-build rig Rowan Renaissance. Delivery of the rig is expected by the end of Dec-2013 and it will move directly to Namibia.

    The Welwitschia-1 well will evaluate primary and secondary target reservoirs in both the Maastrichtian and Aptian-Albian reservoir sequences. The well will be drilled to a depth of 3,000m.

    A site survey of the Welwitschia-1 well location has almost been completed by the MV Ocean Endeavour, operated by Gardline, for geotechnical and oceanographic purposes.

    Tower Resources is a UK-based independent oil and gas exploration company with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa.
