ENI APPRAISES MOZAMBIQUE
A group led by Eni SPA has successfully executed the appraisal campaign for the Agulha discover in Area 4 offshore Mozambique, Eni reported.
The Agulha 2 well, which is the twelfth well drilled in Area 4, proved a 25-m gas column in good quality Paleocene reservoir sandstones and confirmed the southern extension of the field.
The delineation was carried out through the Agulha 2 well, which was drilled in 2,603 m of water and reached a total depth of 5,645 m. The well is in the southern part of Area 4 about 12 km south of the Agulha 1 discovery well and 80 km off Cabo Delgado.
Eni is considering further exploration drilling in the southern part of Area 4 after Agulha 2.
Total resources discovered in Area 4 are estimated at 85 tcf of gas in place.
