Ophir Spuds Well Off Ivory Coast

African Petroleum informed the Ayamé-1X exploration well, offshore Ivory Coast, was spudded on Saturday April 29, 2017 using the Seadrill West Saturn drillship.

The well, operated by Ophir Energy, is located on the CI-513 licence. African Petroleum holds a 45% interest in the licence, with Ophir Energy holding 45% and PETROCI the remaining 10%.

The Ayamé -1X well will target Santonian and Turonian turbidite channel complexes through a water depth of 2,835 metres, with planned total depth at 5,459 metres. The well is expected to reach the total depth in approximately 30 days from spud.

African Petroleum CEO, Jens Pace, said: “This is a material milestone for the company and one which we have been working towards with our partners since Ophir Energy joined the licence in March 2016. Since this time, the partnership has carried out technical work to decide on the best location for this well. The Ayamé West prospect that we are targeting has a significant resource number and a commercial discovery will be truly transformational for African Petroleum. We look forward to updating the market with the outcome of this exciting event.”
