On January 17th 2018, Eland reported that its joint-venture subsidiary Elcrest Exploration and Production Nigeria Ltd had successfully drilled and completed the Opuama-8 well. The Opuama-8 well has been handed over to the Opuama field production team and the well will flow test into the production facilities and on to export. Production performance from the Opuama field is strong, with gross production from Opuama-1, -3 and -7 wells being approximately 18,000bopd. CEO George Maxwell, commented: “We are pleased with the successful drilling and completion of the Opuama-8 well and we look forward to confirming stabilised production rates in due course. The success of Opuama-8 will result in increased production and cash generation from OML 40. Our drilling programme will continue beyond Opuama-9, where our continued investment will further enhance both production and cash flow levels.” At the interim results on September 26th 2018 George Maxwell said, “The outlook for the remainder of 2017 and beyond is very positive”.
