BG Group (BRGYY, BRGXF) and partner Ophir Energy (OPGYF) announce a new gas discovery off the coast of Tanzania with its Taachui-1 probe in Block 1.

The well was drilled to 13,808 ft. and encountered gas in a single gross column of 948 ft. within the targeted reservoir interval; net pay totaled 508 ft.
