Major oil discovery in block CI-101, offshore Ivory Coast
Eni announces a major oil discovery in block CI-101 offshore Ivory Coast. The block is operated by Eni with Petroci Holding, who hold 90% and 10% respectively in the exploration phase.
The discovery well has been drilled on the Baleine prospect, with the support of the Government in the difficult context of the pandemic-covid-19. Baleine-1x discovered light oil (40° API) in two different stratigraphic levels. An evaluation program will be carried out to assess the significant upside potential of the overall structure that extends into block CI-802, also operated by Eni with the same Joint-Venture and participating interests in the exploration phase.
The well was drilled about 60 kilometers off the coast, in about 1,200 meters of water depth with the Saipem 10,000 drill ship and reached a total depth of 3,445 meters in 30 days.
