Eni SPA, through its affiliate Nigerian Agip Oil Co. (NAOC), made a natural gas and condensate discovery in the deeper sequences of Obiafu and Obrikom fields, in OML61, onshore Niger Delta.

The well can deliver more than 100 MMscfd of gas and 3,000 b/d of associated condensates and will be immediately put onstream to increase NAOC’s gas production, the company said.

The Obiafu-41 Deep well reached 4,374 m TD. It encountered gas and condensate accumulation within the deltaic sequence of Oligocene age comprising more than 130 m of high-quality, hydrocarbon-bearing sands. The find amounts to about 1 tcf of gas and 60 million bbl of associated condensate in the deep drilled sequences. The discovery has further potential that will be assessed with the next appraisal campaign, Eni said.

The discovery is part of a drilling campaign planned by NAOC JV and aimed at exploring near-field and deep pool opportunities as immediate time to market opportunities.
