Agogo Appraisal a Success for ENI

Sunday, July 28, 2019

ENI successfully drilled its first appraisal well on the offshore Angola Block 15/06 Agogo discovery with the Agogo-2 well. According to the firm, the well results confirm the 650 million barrels of oil in place at the Agogo field and indicate further upside in its northern sector that will be assessed with new appraisal wells.

The appraisal well encountered 58 meters net of light oil, in sandstones of Miocene and Oligocene age with excellent petro-physical characteristics. The result confirms the extension of the Agogo reservoir to the north of the discovery well and below the salt diapirs. The well has been planned and drilled as a highly deviated one, to reach the sequences below the salt diapirs and prove the existence of reservoir and oil charge also in this sector of the Agogo megastructure. Data acquired in Agogo-2 indicate a production capacity in excess of 15,000 bpd of oil.

Agogo-2 was drilled using the Poseidon drillship, 3 km north-west of the Agogo-1 discovery well, approximately 180 km from the coast and 23 km from the N’Goma West Hub FPSO.

ENI plans to start first production from Agogo before the end of 2019 with a subsea tie back to the N’Goma FPSO. Meanwhile, it will continue the appraisal campaign to assess the discovery’s full potential and size its development.
