Eni said a natural gas and condensate discovery offshore Ghana has gas and oil potential requiring further drilling.

Its Akoma-1X well proved a single gas and condensate column in a 20 m-thick Cenomanian sandstone reservoir with good petrophysical properties.

The Maersk Voyager drillship drilled the well, the first on CTP-Block 4, to 3,790 m TD in 350 m of water about 50 km off the coast.

The discovery is 12 km northwest of the Sankofa hub, where the John Agyekum Kufuor floating production, storage, and offloading vessel is a tie-back possibility. Sankofa field is part of Eni’s Offshore Cape Three Points integrated oil and gas project (OGJ Online, July 6, 2018).

Eni Ghana operates the block with a 42.469% interest. Its partners are Vitol Upstream Tano, 33.975%; GNPC, 10%; Woodfields Upstream, 9.556%; and Explorco, 4%.
