Lekoil provides an update on activities in OPL 310 offshore Nigeria. OPL 310 contains the Ogo discovery announced last year.
The Polarcus vessel MV POLARCUS NADIA has commenced the 3D seismic programme, designed by the partners in OPL 310 - Lekoil, Afren plc and Optimum Petroleum Development Ltd (together "the Partners") - located adjacent to the Lagos shoreline.
The 3D programme will cover an area of approximately 1,505 square kilometers, representing approximately 80 per cent. of the acreage within OPL 310. Current 3D data cover about 20 per cent. of OPL 310 and were used, along with 2D and electromagnetic data to define prospectivity ahead of the drilling of the Ogo-1 and Ogo-1 sidetrack well in the second half of 2013. It is anticipated by the Partners that the new acquisition will be completed in Q2 2014.
