Eni announces major oil discovery in offshore Ghana

Eni Ghana storyEni has announced a major oil discovery on the Eban exploration prospect in CTP Block 4, offshore Ghana

The Eban-1X well is the second well drilled in the CTP Block 4, following the Akoma discovery. 

The new discovery has been assessed following comprehensive analysis of extensive 3D seismic datasets and well data acquisition, including pressure measurements, fluid sampling and intelligent formation testing with state-of-the-art technology. The acquired pressure and fluid data (oil density and gas-to-oil ratio) and reservoir properties are consistent with the previous discovery of Akoma and the nearby Sankofa field. The production testing data shows a well deliverability potential, estimated at 5000 bopd, similar to the wells already in production from the Sankofa Field.

The estimated hydrocarbons in place between the Sankofa field and the Eban-Akoma complex is now in excess of 1.1 Bboe and further oil in place upside could be confirmed with an additional appraisal well.

Due to its proximity to existing infrastructures, the discovery can be fast-tracked to production with a subsea tie-in to the John Agyekum Kufuor FPSO, with the aim to extend its production plateau and increase production. The Eban discovery is a testimony to the success of the infrastructure-led exploration strategy that Eni is carrying out in its core assets worldwide.

The Joint Venture of CTP Block 4 is operated by Eni (42.469%), on behalf of partners Vitol (33.975%), GNPC (10%), Woodfields (9,556%), and GNPC Explorco (4,00%).
