Kosmos awards seismic reservoir contract to OHM

Texas-based oil and gas company, Kosmos Energy and stakeholder in Ghana’s oil industry has awarded a seismic reservoir characterization study contract to OHM Rock Solid Images.

The Rigzone reports that the study will cover the Odum field, offshore Ghana on the West Cape three Points Block. A 3D seismic data volume covering 500km2 will be inverted for the reservoir properties and calibrated to the Odum-1 and Odum-2 discoveries it adds.

The two discoveries are approximately 18km east of Kosmos’ Mahogany-1 exploration well and the Jubilee oil field.

Senior Vice-President of Rock Solid Images, Gareth Taylor, was pleased with the deal, said “we look forward to the challenge of applying our robust and repeatable rock physics-driven seismic reservoir characterization workflows to the Odum oil discovery.”

Ghana’s nascent oil and gas sector is seeing a proliferation of major oil and gas industry players in the country, all seeking to have a stake in what is expected to be one of the very important oil indutries in the world in the next six years, according to sources close to the industry.

Commercial production of oil in Ghana is expected to begin by the end of the year.
