DALLAS – Kosmos Energy and partner Staatsolie will re-spud the Anapai-1 well in block 45 offshore Suriname after encountering shallow borehole stability issues before reaching the target interval.

The well design for Anapai-1 A has been altered to address these issues, and drilling should take 50-60 days to complete.

In offshore block 42 the partnership is finalizing plans for the first of up to three independent tests of prospects, including Pontoenoe, which is similar to and along trend from the discoveries of neighboringGuyana.

Kosmos expects drilling here to start during 3Q. Its partners in block 42 are Chevron and Hess.
