DUBLIN, Ireland – Kosmos Energy expects the semisubmersible Maersk Discoverer to spud the FA-1 well next month on the Foum Assaka license offshore Morocco.

According to partnerFastnet Oil & Gas, the FA-1 well will target the Eagle prospect, estimated to hold Pmean resources of 360 MMboe in the primary deepwater Lower Cretaceous reservoir objective. Water depth is around 600 m (1,968 ft).

It will also target secondary objectives that could provide additional upside in the event of a discovery.

The well is estimated to take up to three months to reach the planned TD of 4,000 m (13,123 ft).

Following a farm-out agreement completed in December, Fastnet is carried for past costs and for FA-1 up to a gross well cost of $100 million.
