Total well cuts oil pay offshore Ivory Coast

By OGJ editors

The Total Ivoire-1X exploratory well has cut 28 m of net oil pay in a 100-m Cetaceous section offshore Ivory Coast. The oil is 35º gravity.

Total E&P Cote d’Ivoire and partners drilled the well to 5,044 m TD in 2,280 m of water in the western part of Block CI-100. It’s the first well on the block.

Total said the results confirm extension into the block of active petroleum systems proven in the Tano basin, which includes fields such as Jubilee offshore Ghana.

The Total subsidiary is analyzing data to develop an appraisal program and explore prospects farther east.

Interests are Total 60%, Yam’s Petroleum LLC 25, and Petroci Holding 15%.
