ABERDEEN, UK – Kosmos Energy has awarded OHM Rock Solid Images a contract to do a seismic reservoir characterization study of the West Cape Three Points block offshore Ghana.

The 3D project is to cover 500 sq km (193 sq mi) and will be inverted and calibrated against the Odum-1 and Odum-2 discoveries 18 km (11 mi) east of Kosmos’ Mahogany-1 exploration well.

“The West African Transform Margin play is in its infancy; relatively few wells have been drilled and there is still much to be learned about developing the most effective strategy for exploitation and production,” says Kenny Goh, Kosmos senior VP. “When confronted with a slope channel complex such as that encountered in the Campanian-aged Odum discovery, an advanced reservoir characterization study based on seismic and well data is an effective tool for reservoir delineation and appraisal. The experience Rock Solid Images has gained in the region over the past two years, including the work completed on the Jubilee field, will play a key role in the successful outcome of this project.”
