Featured Offshore Project
April 22   |   Ayame   |   Region: Africa - West   |   Operator: African Petroleum Corp.
African Petroleum and the government of Cote d?Ivoire recently agreed to amend the Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) covering blocks CI-509 and CI-513. The amendments allow 1-year extensions to the initial exploration periods for both blocks at the expense of the duration of future exploration periods. The company now has until December 2015 and March 2016 to drill the first commitment wells in CI-513 and CI-509 respectively. Extra time is now available to secure a 6th generation rig to carry out the drilling program, to optimize the well locations using recently processed 3D seismic data and to seek farmout partners in an effort to limit financial exposure. Current equity holders include the operator African Petroleum (90%) and state-owned Petroci (10%). More Offshore Projects

Repsol is expected to spud its Welwitschia prospect by the end of next week. Rowan's new ultra-deepwater drillship, Rowan Renaissance, will be used to carry out exploration drilling. There are at least three substantial follow-up exploration opportunities within Namibia's License 0010.
