The Obiafu-41 Deep well has reached a total depth of 4.374 m encountering an important 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 approximately 1 trillion ft3 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.
The well can deliver in excess of 100 million ft3/d of gas and 3000 bpd of associated condensates, and will be immediately put onstream to increase NAOC’s gas production.
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.
