DALLAS, TX — Kosmos Energy is conducting rock and fluid analysis on its recent Tiberius oil discovery in Keathley Canyon Block 964 in the US Gulf of Mexico (GoM).
The well, drilled in 7,500 ft (2,300 m) of water, delivered 250 ft (75 m) net oil pay in the main Wilcox target. Results from the current analysis, designed to confirm reservoir productivity, should follow around year-end 2023.
Kosmos is also working with partners on subsea development options. Tiberius is 6 miles southeast of the Occidental-operated Lucius SPAR production platform.
Also in the GoM, the Odd Job subsea pump project, designed to sustain long-term production from the field, is on track to be in service by mid-2024. At Kodiak, the partners plan a workover program around mid-2024 for remediation purposes.
Development drilling at the Winterfell Field started in August with the first well now completed. Operator Beacon Energy is targeting first oil around the end of first-quarter 2024.
