Sankofa East 2A block,Ghana
Eni says it drilled in its Sankofa East 2A block, its first appraisal well in the Sankofa East discovery area, located about 120 miles offshore Ghana.
“Eni estimates the overall potential of the discovery to be around 450 million barrels of oil in place with recoverable resources of up to 150 million barrels,” the company stated.
The company explains those results are important because it confirms the discovery is of commercial nature, adding that plans are underway for commercial exploitation of those reserves.
Eni is working in the region alongside Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, the Government of Ghana and Vitol.
