Eni affiliate NAOC has discovered 1tcf of gas and 60m barrels of associated condensate in the deeper sequences of the Obiafu-Obrikom fields in OML 61, onshore in the Niger Delta. The Obiafu-41 Deep well reached a total depth of 4,374 metres and encountered more than 130 metres of Oligocene-age hydrocarbon-bearing sands. The well can deliver more than 10mcf/d of gas and 3,000 b/d of condensates, and will immediately be put on stream to increase NAOC’s gas production. The discovery has further potential that will be assessed with the next appraisal campaign, Eni said.
