After finalising wireline logging operations the rig was released from all coring operations marking completion of the current program.

“The core-holes intersected well-developed coal sequences throughout the Serowe, Morupule and Kamotaka formations. Coal quality and thickness results are in-line with pre-drill expectations,” the company said.

“A total of 80 coal gas desorption tests have been captured across the three core-holes. Samples will remain in gas desorption analysis for several weeks and will determine the gas content of the main target coal seam as well as other potential targets in surrounding coal seams.”

Early results for the Lower Morupule coal seam, the main target reservoir, are particularly encouraging. Once gas desorption testing has been completed, a series of additional tests will be conducted on the core such as isotherm testing and coal petrographic analysis.

Early results from the core-holes complement Tlou’s existing knowledge of the Lesedi CBM project area. The new core-hole data will assist with initial reserves certification in the Lesedi CBM project area and the identification of future drilling sites.

Lesedi and Selemo Pods

The Lesedi and Selemo pilot pods continue to de-water. Plans are on-track to upgrade the pumps to increase water lifting capacity in April.
