Successful Ebony-1 Exploration Well Offshore Ghana

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/20/2008, Location: Africa

Tullow Oil plc announces that the Ebony-1 exploration well, located in the Shallow Water Tano licence offshore Ghana, has intersected two hydrocarbon-bearing intervals in Late Cretaceous turbidite sands.

Ebony-1 spudded on 22 October and reached a total depth of 2,640 meters. The well lies in the southwest part of the Shallow Water Tano block in 86 meters of water and is the second commitment well in this licence.

Successful logging and sampling operations have confirmed a four-meter oil bearing interval at 2,053 metres and a two-metre high-pressure gas-condensate interval at 2,570 meters.

Log and sample data from the high-pressure gas-condensate sands and a regional seismic interpretation, indicate there may be a connection between these pinched-out sands and the material down-dip Tweneboa oil prospect that lies mainly in the Deepwater Tano licence. Other possible interpretations for the high-pressure cannot however be excluded at this stage, and this is subject to ongoing evaluation.

Tullow (31.5%) operates the Shallow Water Tano licence on behalf of partners Interoil (31.5%), Al Thani (22.5%), Sabre Oil and Gas (4.5% carried) and GNPC (10% carried).

Commenting today, Aidan Heavey, Chief Executive, said:
“The current interpretation of the Ebony-1 result is extremely encouraging as it further de-risks the regional prospectivity and improves our overall understanding of the hydrocarbon distribution in the basin. This has potentially positive implications for the Tweneboa stratigraphic trap prospect, which is scheduled for drilling in the first quarter of 2009.”
