LONDON – Afren claims its Ogo discovery offshore Nigeria is one of the largest worldwide, with potential recoverable resources of 774 MMboe.

Ogo is in license PL 310 in the Upper Cretaceous fairway that runs along the West African Transform Margin.

Afren says the syn‐rift play that delivered a 280-ft (85-m) gross hydrocarbon column in the Ogo well also exists on the company’s adjacent OML 113 license. The company plans to acquire 3D seismic ahead of appraisal and additional exploration drilling.

This year Afren and its partners will start development of three moreshallow-water Nigerian discoveries, namely the Okoro Further Field Development, the Ebok North Fault block, and Okwok.
