Morocco: Kosmos drills on Foum Assaka
As the pace of exploration speeds up offshore Morocco, Kosmos has begun drilling the FA-1 well on the Foum Assaka Block, while Cairn Energy has plugged and abandoned the JM-1 well on the Cap Juby prospect on the Juby Maritime licence. Kosmos’ well, which spudded on 16 March, will test the Eagle prospect, which the company estimates to contain 360m boe of resources in its primary deep-water Lower Cretaceous reservoir objective. It is expected to take three months to drill.
