kosmos energy ltd (KOS) Key Developments

Kosmos Energy Provides Update on Mauritania Drilling

Kosmos Energy announced that the Tortue-1 exploration well in Block C8 offshore Mauritania has encountered additional hydrocarbons while drilling to total depth to evaluate the deeper Albian stratigraphy. Based on the preliminary analysis of drilling results, Tortue-1 has intersected approximately 10 meters (32 feet) of net hydrocarbon pay in the lower Albian section, which is currently interpreted to be gas. This is in addition to the previously announced 107 meters (351 feet) of net pay encountered in the Cenomanian, which was the primary objective. The well was drilled beyond the primary objective to obtain deeper stratigraphic information and enable seismic calibration of the Albian, which will be tested in subsequent wells. Down to total depth drilled, no water was encountered in the well. Located approximately 285 kilometers southwest of Nouakchott in 2,700 meters of water, and drilled with the Atwood Achiever drillship, the Tortue-1 well was drilled at a total cost of approximately $125 million to a total depth of approximately 5,100 meters. The Tortue discovery area has also been renamed Ahmeyim.
