Tower said on Monday that the Geoquip Marine survey vessel MV Investigator had completed its survey on Friday, February 7.

The vessel drilled three boreholes to a depth of 80 meters with alternating sampling and piezocone penetration tests.

The company added that its initial view was that the data from the three boreholes were consistent and in line with pre-survey expectations regardless of the fact that the data analysis would take several weeks.

To remind, Tower Resources started conducting the Njom-3 site survey last week. The company signed a contract with Geoquip for the survey back in November 2019.

It is also worth reminding that the company was awarded a one-year extension to the initial period of the exploration phase on the Thali license last month.

The initial period of the exploration phase was extended up to one year from its expiration date – September 15, 2019.

At the time, Tower said it had requested the extension for the purpose of completing the Njom-3 well, currently in process on the Njonji structure. The company was also granted a further exceptional one-year extension to the initial period of the exploration phase on Thali.

As for the rig that would be drilling the Njom-3 well, Tower decided to change the rig in August 2019. Namely, it released Vantage’s Topaz Driller jack-up in favor of the COSL Seeker.
