Tlou Energy, the publicly listed energy solutions development company has commenced work on the next phase of drilling at its Lesedi Gas-to-Power project.
The Lesedi 6 gas production pod spudded on 10 April 2023 and is at a depth of
The pod will comprise one vertical
production well intersected by two lateral
wells drilled horizontally through the target reservoir section for several hundred metres.
The objective of the pod is to increase the
volume of gas available to the Company for power generation.
Lesedi 6 is located to the southwest and parallel to the existing Lesedi 4 gas production pod which has been
producing gas for some time.
Once Lesedi 6 is drilled and completed,
dewatering will commence and thereafter the well will start to establish an indicative gas flow rate.
Lesedi 6 is the first well of a proposed
drilling program to expand gas production at the Lesedi project.
Gas flows from Lesedi 6 are planned to be converted to electricity for the existing 10MW Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) once the transmission line, substations and associated electrical infrastructure are in place.
