Tullow finds more oil

  • SOURCE: | Editor
  • Tullow  Ghana , the lead  operator  in the deep  water Jubilee Field  has discovered condensed oil  and gas  in its  Wawa-I exploration well. The  well  falls  within  Tullow’s Deepwater Tano license.

    The Wawa-I exploration well is also  close  to the Tweneboa- Enyenra-Ntomme which  is christened ‘ Project TEN’ and  currently  being  developed for  drilling  works  to start.

    A statement  from Tullow plc, the mother  company  of Tullow  Ghana, issued in London, United Kingdom, and  copied to the Daily Graphic  said Wawa-I exploration well in the Deepwater, Tano licence  offshore Ghana “ has  intersected oil and gas –condensate in a Turonian turbidite  channel system.”

    It said  the Wawa-I encountered 20 metres  of gas  condendate pay and 13 metres of oil pay  in turbidite  sands.

    “ Samples  show  the oil to be  good quality between  38 and 44 degrees API. The well was drilled 10 kilometres north  of the  Enyere-3A  well, testing  the previously undrilled . Pressure  data shows  that  it is  a separate accumulation from  the TEN accumulation from the  TEN fields ,”the statement  added . The  API –the America  Petroleum  Institute – measures  the quality of crude oil.

    The statement  said  the well  would  now  be suspended for  possible  future  use in appraisal and development  operations.
