EDINBURGH, UKBowleven has issued an update on development discussions concerning the Etinde gas field offshore Cameroon.

Operator NewAge recently staged a technical workshop to review options forEtinde, with a view to gaining agreement from all stakeholders on the preferred development solution(s).

The choices include floating LNG, gas-to-power, and others. Participants at the meeting agreed that a commercially viable FLNG scheme with domestic gas offtakes as they become available could represent a credible forward development plan.

Bowleven says there are sufficient resources to support one initial gas offtake solution – more if planned appraisal drilling targeting up to 2 tcf of gas and associated liquids proves successful.

Timing of the drilling will depend largely on which development scheme the joint venture proceeds with.
