Aker Energy has announced that commercial quantity of oil in Ghana estimated around 450 – 550 million barrels is discovered.
Aker Energy said, the well was drilled at the Pecan field approximately 166 kilometres southwest of Takoradi in Ghana, to a vertical depth of 4,870 meters in 2,667 meters of water. The DWT/CTP block offshore Ghana contains seven discoveries, of which Pecan is the main discovery to date.
He said, we are pleased to announce the well results, confirming our understanding of the area, as well as the resource base and upside potential in the DWT/CTP block. Based on these results, we will optimize the Plan of Development for the Pecan field.
The CEO of Aker Energy Jan Arve Haugan stated, there is still a lot of work to be done, including to conclude the phasing of the development, the size of the 1st phase and detailing of the concept. Our most important priority going forward is to deliver a robust field development plan to the Ghanaian authorities.
Based on existing subsurface data from seismic, wells drilled and an analysis of the Pecan-4A well result, the existing discoveries are estimated to contain gross contingent resources (2C) of 450 – 550 million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe).
