Mauritania/Senegal: Kosmos raises Tortue reserves estimate

Issue 320 - 24 Mar 2016 | 1 minute read
Kosmos has raised its reserves estimate for the Greater Tortue Complex to more than 20tcf from 17tcf following the successful Ahmeyim-2 appraisal well. The rig will now move to drill the oil-focused Teranga-1 exploration well in the Cayar Offshore Profond Block in Senegalese waters. Ahmeyim-2 was drilled to a total depth of 5,200 metres offshore Mauritania and penetrated the gas-water contacts in the Lower Cenomanian and Albian, defining the field limit and extending the productive field area from approximately 50km2 to 90km2.
