Anadarko hits gas offshore Mozambique

Oilfield Technology,

US company Anadarko Petroleum has announced that it has discovered gas reserves with a daily rate of 90 to 100 million ft3/d offshore Mozambique.

The company’s senior Vice President of worldwide exploration, Bob Daniels, said, “The Barquentine-2 exhibited exceptional flow characteristics, confirmed the deliverability of this reservoir and indicated a low density of development wells may be sufficient to produce the reservoir.”

The Barquentine-2 well is situated in water of up to 5400 ft deep in the offshore Rovuma Basin. The test was conducted by the drillship Deepwater Millenium, which is due to move to the Barquentine-1 well for more tests.

The Offshore Area 1 covers an area of 2.6 million acres and is operated by Anadarko with a 36.5% interest.
