Taipan Resources Inc. Comments on Sala-1 Discovery

NAIROBI, KENYA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Taipan Resources Inc. ("Taipan" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TPN)(OTCQX:TAIPF), Comments On Africa Oil Corp's ("Africa Oil") Announcement of a Discovery in Sala-1 well.

On June 24, 2014, Africa Oil announced a gas discovery in the Sala-1 Well on Block 9, Kenya in which operator Africa Oil shares a 50% interest with its partner Marathon Oil.

The Sala-1 well is located approximately 60 kilometres from Taipan's Badada prospect, on Block 2B (Taipan: 30% working interest), which is expected to spud in late 2014 or early 2015. In its press release, Africa Oil reported that Sala-1 was drilled to a depth of 3,030 metres and encountered an upper gas-bearing interval where they tested dry gas at a maximum rate of six million cubic feet per day from a 25-metre net pay interval.

Paul Logan, Exploration Manager at Taipan, commented: "The announcement of a gas discovery with associated oil shows in Sala-1 has significantly de-risked the prospectively of the Anza Basin. Sala-1 is believed to have tested a Cretaceous rollover structure against the Lagh Bogal Fault in a similar position to the Badada prospect, but at a much deeper stratigraphic level. Badada-1 will test an as yet, undrilled thick Tertiary sequence of probable Miocene age, similar to that present in the Kingfisher Field in the Albert Basin of Uganda and the Tertiary discoveries of the Lokichar basin in Kenya. The anticipated 3,000 metres of Tertiary section is expected to contain both source and reservoir intervals. The presence of oil shows in Sala-1 suggests that an oil source could also be present in the Cretaceous section at Badada-1."

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
