Anadarco announces seventh discovery well offshore Mozambique

Jan 17, 2012 12:00 AM

Anadarko Petroleum has announced its seventh well in the discovery area offshore Mozambique successfully appraised previous discoveries at Lagosta and Camarao. The Lagosta-2 appraisal well, located about 7 km north of the Lagosta discovery and 8.5 km south of the Camarao well, encountered 237 meters of natural gas pay in multiple zones.
“This is the largest pay count of any well in the complex to date, and it seems fitting that our seventh successful well in the discovery area would encounter 237 meters of pay,” said Bob Daniels, Anadarko Sr Vice President, Worldwide Exploration.

“These excellent results continue to support our recoverable resource estimates of 15 to 30-plus tcf of natural gas in the discovery area on our block, as well as provide additional information that will be incorporated into our models to help determine the optimal subsea development plans for the complex."
"In addition, a second deepwater drillship, the Deepwater Millennium, has arrived in Mozambique to begin an accelerated testing program that will include installing observation gauges and conducting several drillstem tests, as we remain on track to reach a final investment decision for this project in 2013.”

The Lagosta-2 appraisal well was drilled to a total depth of approximately 4,335 meters in water depths of approximately 1,467 meters in the Offshore Area 1 of the Rovuma Basin. The partnership plans to preserve the Lagosta-2 well for future utilization during its planned drillstem testing program in the Windjammer, Barquentine and Lagosta complex.
Once operations are complete, the Belford Dolphin deepwater drillship will be mobilized to drill the Lagosta-3 appraisal well.

Anadarko is the operator of the 2.6-mm-acre Offshore Area 1 with a 36.5-% working interest. Co-owners in the area are Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area 1 (20 %), BPRL Ventures Mozambique (10 %), Videocon Mozambique Rovuma 1 (10 %) and Cove Energy Mozambique Rovuma Offshore (8.5 %).
Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos's 15-% interest is carried through the exploration phase.
