Kosmos to continue exploratory drilling offshore Mauritania

Offshore staff

DALLASKosmos Energy plans further delineation drilling on its Ahmeyim (ex-Tortue) gas discovery offshore Mauritania.

Earlier this year the Tortue-1 exploration well encountered 107 m (351 ft) of net pay in the Cenomanian, and a further 10 m (32 ft) of gas in the lower Albian section.

In addition, Kosmos expects to spud the Marsouin-1 exploration well in the central part of Mauritanian offshore block C-8 later in the current quarter.

Offshore Ghana, Kosmos is a partner in the Tullow Oil-operated Jubilee field where last month a gas compressor on the FPSO stopped working, constraining gas exports and injection.

However, a repair is under way and full production should restart soon.
