Houston-based Kosmos Energy’s Mahogany-2 well, drilled to appraise Jubilee Field offshore Ghana, intersected a significant column of light oil. The appraisal well, drilled in the West Cape Three Points license, cut 243 meters of gross reservoir section in Turonian turbidite sandstones. Net hydrocarbon-bearing pay was 50 meters. The test was drilled in 1,080 meters of water and reached a total depth of 3,443 meters. Drilling results indicate that the Jubilee accumulation features 600 meters of oil and gas column, and extends at least 11 kilometers to the Hyedua-1 discovery well in the adjacent Deepwater Tano license. Three more Jubilee appraisal wells are planned for 2008. Partners in the well are Anadarko Petroleum Corp., Tullow Oil, E.O. Group, Sabre Oil & Gas and Ghana National Petroleum Corp. The group looks toward first production in 2010.
