Tlou Energy commences CBM drilling

World Coal,

Tlou Energy Limited has announced that the 2014 core-hole drilling program has commenced in the Lesedi CBM (coalbed methane) project area. The first of the three new core-holes was spudded on 21st February.

The well locations for the program have been chosen to provide important infill data on coal quality in and around the current pilot pods to assist with initial reserves certification and identification of additional drilling sites for an expanded well program.

The company expects that the data collected from the three core-holes, together with the data collected from the production testing operation on both the Selemo and Lesedi pilot pods, will optimise reserves certification in the Lesedi CBM project area.


Tlou managing director, Tony Gilby, commented: “Tlou is currently aiming to certify the first 2P CBM reserves in Botswana from the Lesedi CBM project area in mid-2014. This will provide Tlou with a significant ‘first mover advantage’ to commercialise the Lesedi CBM Project and provide Botswana with a cheaper and cleaner energy solution.”
