SYDNEY (XFN-ASIA) – Woodside Petroleum Ltd said its Pomboo-1 exploration well in Block L-5 of the offshore Lamu Basin in Kenya is been plugged and abandoned after failing to encounter hydrocarbons.

The group, 34 pct owned by the Royal Dutch Shell group, said the well reached a total depth of 4,887 meters and did not detect hydrocarbons in the primary target zone between 4,685 meters and total depth.

It said Pomboo-1 encountered in excess of 200 meters of moderate to good quality reservoir sandstones.

The well is about 350 km north-east of Mombasa in 2,200 meters of water.

Woodside is the operator in Block L-5 and has a 30 pct interest, UK’s Dana Petroleum Plc 30 pct, Australia’s Global Petroleum 20 pct and Spain’s Repsol Exploracion SA 20 pct.
