MELBOURNE, Australia – FAR has reviewed the contingent resources attributed to the deepwater FAN discovery and the prospective hydrocarbon resources in its Rufisque, Sangomar, and Sangomar Deep permits offshore Senegal.

These include the SNE oil field, discovered in 2014. The same campaign brought a discovery via the FAN-1 well.

RISC Operations has completed an independent resources report for the FAN discovery based on well log interpretation and mapping using 3D seismic. The resource range is 30 MMbbl at the low (IC) end to 637 MMbbl at the high (3C) end.

Development is contingent on positive results from further appraisal. The discovery is roughly 20 km (12.4 mi) from the plannedSNE development hub. FAR estimates SNE’s reserves at 641 MMbbl.

Last year, the partnership also achieved two new discoveries,FAN South and SNE North, and has made submissions to Senegal’s government of to undertake appraisal in order to better understand the commercial potential of tiebacks to the SNE field complex.
