Mauritania/Senegal: Tortue test
Kosmos Energy has completed a drill stem test (DST) of the Tortue-1 well, which it said confirmed well deliverability, reservoir connectivity and fluid composition. The Atwood Achiever drillship, which conducted the DST, has now moved to Block C-8 offshore Mauritania to begin exploration drilling on the Hippocampe prospect.Kosmos said the Tortue-1 well flowed at a sustained, equipment-constrained rate of approximately 60mcf/d during the main, extended flow period, with minimal pressure drawdown, providing confidence in well designs that are each capable of producing approximately 200mcf/d.
