Afren reports that the Nunya-1x exploration well in the Keta block offshore Ghana has encountered thick and high quality water bearing reservoirs.
The objective of the Nunya-1x exploration well was to explore a large four-way dip closed Upper Cretaceous prospect in the Keta block, located offshore Ghana. The well intersected 153 metres of very good quality sandstone reservoirs, however they were interpreted as water bearing.
The well was drilled with the Marianas semi-submersible drilling rig to a total depth of 4,550 metres in a water depth of 1,687 metres. Afren has a 35 per cent. carried interest in the Keta Block and is partnered by Eni (35 per cent. and operator), Mitsui (20 per cent.) and GNPC (10 per cent.).
