The Teak-4A appraisal well on Ghana’s West Cape Three Points Block was deemed a disappointment for the partners on the block. The well was targeting the stratigraphic extension of the Teak discovery area and encountered thin, non-commercial reservoirs and is being plugged and abandoned.
Kosmos Energy, operator of the block, and its partners have begun integrating well results into the Teak field model to determine forward appraisal and development plans.
The Atwood Hunter rig drilled Teak-4A to a total depth of 2,850 meters. Following the completion of operations at the Teak-4A well, the drilling rig will set gauges at the Teak-2A well and perform a drill stem test at the Akasa oil discovery on the West Cape Three Points Block.
Kosmos Energy is partnered with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. Tullow Oil plc, Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings Ltd., and the Ghana National Petroleum Corp.
