Ahmeyim and Guembeul gas offshore Mauritania and SenegalKosmos Energy has announced that its successful appraisal of
Situated offshore Mauritania, around five kilometres northwest and 200 metres downdip of the basin-opening Tortue-1 discovery well in around 2,800 metres of water, Ahmeyim-2 was drilled to a total depth of 5,200 meters, according to Kosmos Energy.
"Ahmeyim-2 is our fourth successful exploration and appraisal well and continues our 100 percent success rate in the outboard Cretaceous petroleum system offshore Mauritania and Senegal, further demonstrating that Kosmos has opened a world-class hydrocarbon province,” said Andrew G. Inglis, chairman and chief executive officer.
“With this well, we believe we have proven sufficient gas resource to underpin a world-scale LNG project in the Tortue West structure alone. The combination of the resource size and quality continue to support our view that Tortue is a competitive source of LNG and we are working towards commercialization.”
