The company drilled two maturation wells during 1Q 2015 on the Golfinho discovery to advance the project toward development.
Anadarko and its partners continue to progress remaining agreements and approvals for a development of various deepwater gas fields linked to new LNG facilities onshore Mozambique.
They have held talks with the new administration, including the president and prime minister, and have evaluated onshore LNG contractor bids in preparation for contractor selection later this year.
In block CI-103 off Côte d’Ivoire, Anadarko is planning for a drillstem test and interference program as part of its appraisal of the deepwater Paon discovery. The program will likely include further appraisal drilling during the second half of this year.
Data from these operations should shed light on reservoir connectivity, deliverability, fluid properties and reservoir size, with positive results moving the partners closer to a final investment decision.
Additionally, the company is preparing to drill a first well on a prospect in the CI-528 block in 2016.
