Eni announces a gasoline and condensate discovery in CTP-Block 4, offshore Ghana.
The well, drilled on the Akoma exploration prospect, proved an believed volume involving 550 and 650 bcf of gas and 18-20 mmbbl of condensate.
The discovery has even further further upside for fuel and oil that will have to have further drilling to be verified.
The exploration nicely Akoma – 1X is positioned somewhere around 50 kilometers off the coastline and about 12 km north-west from Sankofa hub, where by the John Agyekum Kufuor FPSO is positioned.
The very well was drilled by the Maersk Voyager drilling ship in a water depth of 350 meters and reached a full depth of 3790 meters.
Akoma – 1X proved a solitary gas and condensate column in a 20 m thick sandstone reservoir interval of cenomanian age with good petrophysical homes and with hydrocarbon down to.
Akoma – 1X is the very first well drilled in CTP-Block 4 and represents a discovery of a potentially professional mother nature, owing to its shut length to the existing infrastructures. The discovery can be put in creation with a subsea tie to the FPSO with the intention to increase its manufacturing plateau.
The Joint Undertaking of CTP-Block 4 is fashioned by Eni Ghana (operator, 42.469%), Vitol Upstream Tano (33.975%), GNPC (10%), Woodfields Upstream (9,556%), Explorco (4,00%).
Ghana is amid the crucial Nations for Eni’s organic progress. The enterprise has been existing in the place since 2009 and accounts at present a gross production of about 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent for each working day.
