Eni has revealed that it has made a significant gas and condensates discovery in the Cape Three Points Block Four (CTP-Block 4) offshore Ghana in the Western Region.
The well is estimated at a volume of between 550 and 650 billion cubic feet (bcf) of gas and 18 to 20 million barrels (mmbbl) of condensate.
Eni said the Akoma-1X was the first well drilled in CTP-Block 4 and represented a discovery of potentially commercial nature due to its proximity to the existing infrastructure.
In a statement, Eni said the exploration well Akoma-1X was located approximately 50 kilometers off the coast and about 12 kilometers north-west of the Sankofa hub, where current production on the FPSO John Agyekum Kufuor is currently ongoing.
The well was drilled by the Maersk Voyager drilling ship in a water depth of 350 meters and reached a total depth of 3,790 meters.
The Akoma-1X well also proved a single gas and condensate column in a 20m thick sandstone reservoir interval, which contains the oil in the earth’s bowel with good petrophysical properties or porosity of the reservoir and with hydrocarbon.
ENI has indicated that Ghana remains the key country for its organic growth since its presence in the country in 2009.
