Eni, through its affiliate NAOC (Eni 20%, operator, NNPC 60%, Oando 20%) has made a significant gas and condensate find in the deeper sequences of the Obiafu-Obrikom fields, in OML61, onshore Niger Delta.
The well has an estimated production capacity of around 3 million cubic meters of gas and three thousand barrels of condensate per day, and will be immediately put into production to increase NAOC gas production.
The Obiafu 41 Deep well has reached a total depth of 4.374m and it is characterized by the presence of over 130 m of high-quality mineralized sands. The volumes in place of the accumulation are around 28 billion cubic meters of gas and 60 million barrels of condensate in the deep perforated sequences.
The discovery is part of a drilling campaign planned by NAOC JV to explore the opportunities of deep sequences not previously drilled with the opportunity of immediate time to market and it has also further potential that will be evaluated with a new drilling campaign.
