Senegal/Guinea Bissau: Oryx, Svenska drilling plans
Oryx Petroleum Corporation plans to drill next year in the joint Senegal/Guinea Bissau development zone Agence de Gestion et Cooperation (AGC). Drilling on the AGC Shallow licence will target the Dome Iris prospect, a Maastrichtian formation in the Cretaceous reservoir. Oryx head of corporate finance Scott Lewis told African Energy: “we very much like both the AGC Shallow and AGC Central licences. The play type – carbonate edge play – in AGC Central is similar to Cairn’s most recent discovery” offshore Senegal.
