Tullow finds quality oil at Enyenra-4A appraisal well offshore Ghana
Tullow Oil Plc has encountered oil in very good quality sandstone reservoirs at the Enyenra-4A appraisal well in the Deepwater Tano licence offshore Ghana, the company said in a statement today March 16, 2012.
According to Tullow, the Enyenra-4A well was drilled to define the southern extent of the field.
“Results of drilling, wireline logs, samples of reservoir fluids and pressure data show that Enyenra-4A has intersected 32 metres of net oil pay,” the operator said.
The well is located just under seven kilometres south west of Enyenra-2A and almost 21km south of the Enyenra-3A well which defined the northern end of the Enyenra oil field.
Tullow operates the Deepwater Tano licence with a 49.95% stake and is partnered by Kosmos Energy (18.00%), Anadarko Petroleum (18.00%), Sabre (4.05%) and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) (10% carried interest).
Angus McCoss, Exploration Director at Tullow said “The appraisal of the Enyenra field will now continue with the monitoring of the pressure gauges deployed in several wells to determine the level of dynamic connectivity within the system and to further refine the estimates of oil in place.”
