FIRST OIL SHOW IN DELTA

As a result of tests carried out at Shell-D’Arcy’s exploration well at Oloibiri, in Brass Division, some oil has been found in quantities somewhat larger than so far discovered in other wells.

However, until tests in this well are completed, and possibly further wells drilled in the vicinity, the extent of the find cannot be ascertained.
