LONDON -- Afren has upgraded volumetrics for the Ebok field, offshore Nigeria. In November, the Ebok-5 appraisal well encountered a total gross oil column of 377 ft (115 m), comprising 323 ft (98 ft) in the D1 and LD-1E reservoir sands and 54 ft (16 m) of gross oil pay in the D2 and LD-1F reservoirs.

Due to the greater than expected oil column (particularly in the LD-1E reservoir), the company has updgraded volumetrics from 93 MMbbl to 158 MMbbl STOIIP, of which 40 MMbbl is estimated as recoverable. This increases total 2P Ebok recoverable reserve estimates to 93 MMbbl, the company says.
