Congo offshore joy for Total


FRENCH GIANT TOTAL has found “positive results” at its Moho Nord Marine-4 well, about 75 km off of the Republic of Congo.
The well was drilled in about 1078 m in the northern part of the Moho-Bilondo licence to a total depth of 4239 m in the Albian series.
The well hit a 163-m column of high quality oil in the Albian F structure and flowed at 8100 bpd through a 52/64-inch choke, the company said.
The discovery follows on from the Moho Nord Marine-1 and 2 finds in 2007 and the positive delineation well of Moho Nord Marine-3 last year.
These discoveries reinforce Total’s confidence in the emergence of a development pole in the northern part of the Moho-Bilondo license.
Total hopes to ramp up production on Phase 1 in the southern part of Moho-Bilondo to 90 000 boepd by next year.
The development includes of fourteen subsea wells tied back to a floating production unit with output exported to the onshore Djéno terminal.
