The firm estimates the overall potential of the discovery to be around 450 million barrels of oil in place with recoverable resources judged to be up to 150 million barrels.

The Sankofa East discovery is in the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) block, located in the Tano Basin around 30 miles off the coast of Ghana.

Eni said in a statement that the result is important because it confirms the commercial standing of the oil discovery in the OCTP block and the strategic important of the block for further industrial and economic development in the country.
