Tullow announes result of appraisal well offshore Côte d’Ivoire

LONDON -- Tullow Oil said that the Paon-2A appraisal well in the CI-103 licence offshore Côte d’Ivoire has determined the down-dip extent of the Paon oil accumulation. The well encountered the water below the oil accumulation discovered at the Paon-1X well and pressure logging has located the likely oil water contact.

To minimise the number of appraisal wells, Paon-2A was located 15 km southwest and approximately 370 m down-dip of the Autruche light oil discovery made by the Paon-1X well in 2012. The well encountered Upper Cretaceous reservoir sandstones, which were water bearing at this location. Pressure data from the Autruche age reservoirs intersected in Paon-2A indicate that the Autruche oil accumulation between this well and Paon-1X has a hydrocarbon column of at least 230 m.

Following completion of logging operations the well will be plugged and abandoned. The Seadrill West Leo dynamically positioned semi-submersible drilled Paon-2A to a final depth of 5,380 m in water depths of 2,366 m.

Tullow (15% plus a 15% carried interest) operates the CI-103 licence and is partnered by Anadarko Petroleum (55%) and the Societé Nationale d’Opérations Pétrolières de Côte D’Ivoire (Petroci) (5% plus a 10% carried interest).
