Kosmos Energy's (NYSE: KOS) Makore-1 exploration well on the West Cape Three Points Block offshore the Republic of Ghana encountered 37 meters (121 feet) of good-quality Campanian-age water-bearing sandstone reservoirs and 46 meters (151 feet) of good-quality Turonian-age water-bearing sandstone reservoirs.

The Makore-1 well was Kosmos’ first well in the southeastern portion of the block. The well explored a stratigraphic trap in a Turonian-age fan system.

The Makore-1 well is located 25 km (15 miles) southeast of the company’s Mahogany-1 exploration well that discovered the Jubilee Field. The Atwood Hunter semisubmersible rig drilled the Makore-1 well in a water depth of 1,409 meters (4,623 feet) to a total depth of 3,876 meters (12,716 feet).

The Atwood Hunter will remain on the block to drill the Akasa-1 exploration well, formerly known as the Dahoma Up-dip prospect. The Akasa-1 well is expected to be spudded shortly.

Kosmos is the operator of the West Cape Three Points Block with 30.875% interest. Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has a 30.875% interest; Tullow Oil plc has a 22.896% interest; E.O. Group Limited has a 3.5% interest; Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings Limited has a 1.854% interest; and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation has a 10% carried interest.
