BP and Kosmos Energy have found more gas in an appraisal well on the Greater Tortue development area as Kosmos prepares to farm down part of its interest. Kosmos said the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim-1 (GTA-1) well, drilled on the eastern anticline within the development area, encountered approximately 30 metres of net gas pay in a high-quality Albian reservoir. The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim LNG project is on track to deliver first gas in H1 2022, and the well, which has been designed as a future producer, will be used to further optimise the development drilling plans for the BP-operated project, Kosmos said.
