PARIS --Total reports discovery of shallow gas in a shallow-water concession offshore western Nigeria.

Well Agge-3B.T1 in Offshore Mining Lease 136 targeted an unexplored compartment of the Agge structure in 140 m (459 ft) water depth. The well intersected several gas-bearing reservoirs yielding a total gross thickness of over 150 m (492 ft), says Total.

A production test over the lower intervals delivered flow of 21 MMcf/d on a 36/64-in. choke. Total and partner Conoil Producing are studying development options for the well and other discoveries in the block.
