The cumulative results of Anadarko Petroleum’s appraisal tests in the Offshore Area 1 of Mozambique’s deepwater Rovuma basin have substantially increased the resource potential of that block. The appraisal section of its most recent exploration well at the Camarao prospect encountered 240 net ft of natural gas pay and confirmed static pressure connectivity with the adjacent Windjammer and Lagosta discoveries. In addition, the Camarao well discovered about 140 net ft of natural gas pay in shallower Miocene and Oligocene sand packages not encountered in previous wells. The discoveries are estimated to hold at least 10 Tcf of recoverable natural gas resources. Anadarko is planning to drill up to seven exploration and appraisal wells in the Rovuma basin over the next 12 months.
