The has confirmed an updip extension of the Enyenra light oil field and encountered 17 meters (56 feet) of 35 degrees API gravity oil.

The Deepwater Millenium drillship drilled the Enyenra-3A well to a total depth of 4,031 meters (13,226 feet) in 1,102 meters (3,615 feet) of water.

Pressure data from the high-quality reservoirs intersected suggests a continuous oil column of over 365 meters (1,197 feet), as well as static pressure communication between the Enyenra-3A well with both the Owo-1 discovery well and the Enyenra-2A appraisal well.

Kosmos plans to redrill and test flows of the Owo-1 discovery well, as well as the drilling of the Enyenra-4A downdip extension test approximately 6.8 kilometers (4.2 miles) south of Enyenra-2A.

An Enyenra-5A appraisal well will to be drilled north of Enyenra-3A to test the updip extent of the field.

In addition, the Transocean Marianas, drilling rig will arrive on the West Cape Three Points Block offshore Ghana to drill the Teak-3 appraisal well in the next week.

Kosmos Energy holds an 18% interest in the Deepwater Tano Block and is the operator of the West Cape Three Points Block with a 30.875% interest.
