A round-up of latest events, company and industry news
Bob Daniels, Anadarko SVP for Exploration, said the latest find in the feed-gas complex for the Mozambique LNG project was the largest pay count to date
ANADARKO Petroleum hit its largest natural gas pay well yet in the seventh drilling appraisal in its discovery area offshore Mozambique from where it plans to produce up to 30 trillion cubic feet or more of feed-gas for an LNG project comprising up to six liquefaction Trains. This latest discovery followed previous pay wells found at the Lagosta and Camarao appraisals. The latest Lagosta-2 appraisal well, located about 7km north of the Lagosta discovery and 8.5km south of the Camarao well, encountered 777 total net feet of natural gas pay in multiple zones, Anadarko said. "This is the largest pay count of any well in the complex to date, and it seems fitting that our seventh successful well in the discovery area would encounter 777 net feet of pay," said Bob Daniels, Anadarko Senior Vice President of Exploration. "These excellent results continue to support our recoverable resource estimates of 15 to 30-plus trillion cubic feet of natural gas in the discovery area on our block, as well as provide additional information that will be incorporated into our models to help determine the optimal subsea development plans for the complex," he said. Anadarko is the operator of the 2.6-million-acre Offshore Area 1 with a 36.5 percent working interest. Co-owners in the area are Mitsui of Japan (20 percent), BPRL Ventures of India (10 percent), Indian industrial group Videocon (10 percent) and Cove Energy (8.5 percent). Cove is the UK-listed company which has put itself up for sale for an estimated $1.2 billion, with its stake in the feed-gas for the Mozambique LNG project being its main assets.
