Bonvillain is a Pliocene-Upper Miocene oil prospect located in the prolific Auger Basin in Garden Banks. The prospect is a series of stacked amplitudes that tie directly to the primary pay at Shell’s Cardamom discovery (100 MMBOE) which is located 6 miles south of the prospect. The amplitudes appear thick with excellent down dip conformance. The mean prospect potential is 83 MMBOE. DGE III expects to drill the initial well in 2018.
