Kosmos Expands 2011 Exploration Program in Ghana

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/5/2011, Location: Africa

Kosmos Energy will drill an additional well as part of its 2011 exploration campaign offshore the Republic of Ghana on the West Cape Three Points Block. The company has secured additional rig capacity on the "Transocean Marianas" semi-submersible rig to drill the Cedrela-1 well west of the Makore prospect near the block's southern boundary. The well will target multiple objectives that the company previously has encountered on the block and is located nine kilometers (km) (six miles) north of the Paradise-1 discovery well recently announced by Hess Corporation. Kosmos anticipates that the well will be spudded in the third quarter of 2011.

The "Atwood Hunter" semi-submersible rig currently is drilling the Makore-1 exploration well in the southern portion of the West Cape Three Points Block. The Makore-1 well is targeting Upper Cretaceous Turonian-age reservoirs similar to those encountered in Kosmos' Jubilee oil field. The "Atwood Hunter" will remain on the West Cape Three Points Block to drill the Akasa-1 well, formerly known as the Dahoma Up-dip prospect.

The drilling of the Cedrela-1 well will bring Kosmos' 2011 capital spending budget for Ghana to $430 million, $260 million of which will be spent on exploration and appraisal drilling.

Kosmos is the operator of the West Cape Three Points Block in which the company holds a 30.875% interest. An affiliate of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has a 30.875% interest; an affiliate of Tullow Oil plc has a 22.896% interest; E.O. Group Limited has a 3.5% interest; Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings Limited has a 1.854% interest; and Ghana National Petroleum Corporation has a 10% carried interest.
