The operator of the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points (DWT/CTP) block, Aker Energy, has announced the near-completion of a successful drilling operation of the Pecan-4A appraisal well offshore the Western Region of Ghana.

This, the Chief Executive Officer at Aker Energy, Jan Arve Haugan, said has been successfully proven, adding "We are pleased to announce the well results, confirming our understanding of the area, as well as the resource base and upside potential in the DWT/CTP block.”

The well was drilled at the Pecan field in the DWT/CTP block approximately 166 kilometres southwest of Takoradi in Ghana, to a vertical depth of 4,870 meters in 2,667 meters of water. The DWT/CTP block offshore Ghana contains seven discoveries, of which Pecan is the main discovery to date.

The main purpose of Pecan-4A appraisal well was to confirm Aker Energy’s understanding of the geology in the area and to identify deep oil water contact in the Pecan reservoir. This was successfully proven.

Based on existing subsurface data from seismic, wells drilled and an analysis of the Pecan-4A well result, the existing discoveries are estimated to contain gross contingent resources (2C) of 450 – 550 million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe).

Aker Energy estimates that with the next two appraisal wells to be drilled, the total volumes to be included in a Plan of Development (POD) have the potential to increase to between 600 – 1,000 mmboe. In addition, there are identified multiple well targets to be drilled as part of a greater area development after submission of the POD.
