Total Exploration Senior Vice-President, Kevin McLachlan, has announced the discovery of new gas condensate on Brulpadda by the French energy giant.
The Brulpadda prospect
According to Offshore Technology, the Brulpadda well was drilled by Total using a new drilling ship and encountered 57m of net gas condensate pay in Lower Cretaceous reservoirs.
After the main objective was achieved, the well was deepened to a final depth of 3,633m and has also been successful in the Brulpadda-deep prospect.
The Block 11B/12B in the Outeniqua Basin is operated by Total with a 45% working interest and covers a 19,000km² area, with water depths ranging from 200 to 1,800m.
Meanwhile, Total is handling the block in partnership with Qatar Petroleum which holds 25%, CNR international (20%) and a South African consortium, Main Street (10%).
Vice-president McLachlan said, “With this discovery, Total has opened a new world-class gas and oil play and is well positioned to test several follow-on prospects on the same block.”
