DALLAS – The Teak-3A appraisal well offshore Ghana has confirmed a northern extension of the West Cape Three Points block discovery, says Kosmos Energy.

Analysis of well results, including wireline logs, reservoir pressures and fluid samples, indicate Teak-3A encountered 35 m (115 ft) of hydrocarbons in multiple good-quality reservoirs. The analysis identified 13 m (43 ft) of 36-39° API gravity and 22 m (72 ft) of gas/condensate pay. The hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs encountered were Campanian and Turonian in age and similar to those in the discovery well.

The Transocean Marianas semisubmersible drilled the Teak-3A well to TD of 3,222 m (10,571 ft) in 444 m (1,457 ft) of water. Following the completion of operations at Teak-3A, the rig will be released to another operator.

Kosmos anticipates drilling the Teak-4A appraisal well in 2Q 2012.

Kosmos Energy is the operator of the West Cape Three Points block with a 30.875% interest. Anadarko Petroleum Corp. has a 30.875% interest, Tullow Oil plc has a 26.396% interest, Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings Ltd has a 1.854% interest; and the Ghana National Petroleum Corp. has a 10% carried interest.
