Kosmos' Makore-1 exploration well on the West Cape Three Points Block offshore the Republic of Ghana encountered 37 meters (121 feet) of good-quality Campanian-age water-bearing sandstone reservoirs and 46 meters (151 feet) of good-quality Turonian-age water-bearing sandstone reservoirs. The Makore-1 well was Kosmos' first well in the southeastern portion of the block. The well explored a stratigraphic trap in a Turonian-age fan system.
The Makore-1 well is located 25 km (15 miles) southeast of the company's Mahogany-1 exploration well that discovered the Jubilee Field. The Atwood Hunter semisubmersible rig drilled the Makore-1 well in a water depth of 1,409 meters (4,623 feet) to a total depth of 3,876 meters (12,716 feet). The Atwood Hunter will remain on the block to drill the Akasa-1 exploration well, formerly known as the Dahoma Up-dip prospect. The Akasa-1 well is expected to be spudded shortly.
