Eni reports a new giant natural gas discovery in Area 4, offshore Mozambique, at the Coral 1 exploration prospect.
The results for this well, drilled in the southern part of Area 4, are of particular significance. The Coral discovery is estimated to contain between 7 and 10 tcf of gas in place, exclusively located in Area 4. With these new results at Coral 1, Eni estimates that the resources exclusively located in Area 4 range between 15 and 20 tcf of gas in place. The new discovery further increases the total potential of the Mamba complex discovered so far in Area 4 Offshore Rovuma, which is now estimated to hold between 47 and 52 tcf of gas in place.
Coral 1 is located 65 kilometers off the Capo Delgado coast in a water depth of 2,261 meters and reaches a total depth of 4,869 meters. The well was drilled approximately 26 kilometers south east of the Mamba South 1 discovery.
