Mauritania: Lamantin well fails


Issue 360 - 21 Dec 2017 | 1 minute read
Kosmos Energy said on 12 December that the Lamantin-1 well on Block C-12 had failed to find significant hydrocarbons. Kosmos said the Campanian reservoir target was water-bearing. “We believe the prospect failed due to a lack of trap, related to a combination of up-dip sand pinch-out and top/base seal effectiveness. The well will now be plugged and abandoned and the well results integrated into the ongoing evaluation of the significant remaining prospectivity in Kosmos’ large acreage position,” Kosmos said.
