Sydney, Aug 26, 2011 (ABN Newswire) - Bounty Oil & Gas NL (ASX:BUY) (PINK:BYOGF) is pleased to advise progress on the Nyuni-2 well, currently being drilled from Nyuni Island in the Nyuni Block, off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean.

Nyuni 2 Exploration Well

Nyuni 2 is being drilled from the same lease location on Nyuni Island as the Nyuni 1 well drilled by the joint venture in 2004. Nyuni Island lies approximately 30 kilometres off the mainland of Tanzania, to the south of the Rufiji River delta


Nyuni-2 was spudded on 17 June 2011 using the Caroil Rig-6, to target Lower Cretaceous age Neocomian (earliest Lower Cretaceous) sandstones, similar to those found in Bounty's nearby Kiliwani North gas field and in the producing Songo-Songo gas field. The well is being drilled at an angle of 30 degrees from vertical, to target a bottom hole location approximately 1,200 metres SE of the surface location. Planned measured total depth is 3,325 metres BRT.

With the exception of a period of several days when the rig was shut down due to a requirement to replace damaged rig equipment, drilling operations have made satisfactory progress to date and 9 5/8" casing is now being run to the current total measured depth of 2,945 metres BRT. Once the well has been safely cased to this point, drilling will resume towards its target. The result of the well will be announced at the earliest opportunity.

Partners in the well are:-

- Ndovu Resources Limited (Aminex PLC) 65% (operator)
- Rakgas Tanzania Ltd 25%
- Bounty Oil& Gas NL 5%
- Key Petroleum Ltd (KEY) 5%
