Aker Energy, because the operator of the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points (DWT/CTP) block, publicizes that it’s about to finish a profitable drilling operation of the Pecan-4A appraisal nicely offshore Ghana.
The nicely was drilled on the Pecan discipline within the DWT/CTP block roughly 166 kilometres southwest of Takoradi in Ghana, to a vertical depth of four,870 meters in 2,667 meters of water. The DWT/CTP block offshore Ghana accommodates seven discoveries, of which Pecan is the principle discovery thus far.
The important goal of Pecan-4A appraisal nicely was to substantiate Aker Energy’s understanding of the geology within the space and to determine deep oil water contact within the Pecan reservoir. This was efficiently confirmed.
“We are happy to announce the nicely outcomes, confirming our understanding of the realm, in addition to the useful resource base and upside potential within the DWT/CTP block. Based on these outcomes, we are going to optimise the Plan of Development for the Pecan discipline. There continues to be lots of work to be completed, together with to conclude the phasing of the event, the dimensions of first section and detailing of the idea. Our most essential precedence going ahead is to ship a strong discipline growth plan to the Ghanaian authorities,” says Jan Arve Haugan, Chief Executive Officer at Aker Energy.
Based on current subsurface information from seismic, wells drilled and an evaluation of the Pecan-4A nicely end result, the present discoveries are estimated to include gross contingent assets (2C) of 450 – 550 million barrels of oil equal (mmboe). Aker Energy estimates that with the subsequent two appraisal wells to be drilled, the whole volumes to be included in a Plan of Development (POD) have the potential to extend to between 600 – 1,000 mmboe. In addition, there are recognized a number of nicely targets to be drilled as a part of a higher space growth after submission of the POD.
“Aker Energy sees nice potential on this promising space offshore Ghana. We see the inspiration for a phased growth producing via a number of manufacturing models. Since we turned the operator lower than a 12 months in the past, we’ve established an open, inclusive and clear collaboration with Ghanaian authorities. This partnership will allow us to unlock the huge potential within the space to the advantage of each the Ghanaian society and our license companions. We are wanting ahead to persevering with and additional strengthening this partnership to develop the Ghanaian oil and fuel industries,” concludes Haugan.
Aker Energy is the operator of the DWT/CTP block with a 50% collaborating curiosity. Aker Energy’s companions are LUKOIL (38%), the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) (10%) and Fueltrade (2%). (Source: Aker Energy)
