Africa Hydrocarbons Provides Operational Update
July 18, 2013 — Calgary, Alberta (Source: Marketwired) — Africa Hydrocarbons Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NFK) (“AHI” or the “Company“) today issued the following operational update regarding its BHN-1 exploration well in Tunisia. As previously announced, the Company has reached total depth of 2745 metres, after penetrating 247 metres of the Abiod chalky limestone formation within the planned target area. Due to open-hole wellbore instability issues caused by sloughing shales overlying the Abiod, the Company has deemed it prudent to run the 7” liner to bottom, after which it will then conduct cased-hole wire-line logging operations. Setting and cementing of the liner is currently underway.
The BHN-1 well was spud on June 8, 2013 and is the first exploration well on the Bouhajla Permit. It is being drilled to evaluate a Cretaceous Abiod oil target on the Bouhajla North prospect.
