Etinde (former Block 7) has been extensively explored and 15 exploration and appraisal wells have been drilled since 1967, of which 13 discovered hydrocarbons. Four separate reservoirs are proven producers: Biafra, Upper Isongo, Intra-Isongo and Middle Isongo. Although the Intra-Isongo sands have only been drilled by one penetration, this zone contains thick, high quality sands, which extend across the block. Delineating and extending this important discovery will be a key objective of the future work plan.
Our project is at the appraisal/development phase to optimize development of the Etinde Field and options to monetize gas resources. Full development of the Etinde Field will deliver a world-class production asset exporting gas, oil and condensate whilst ensuring gas supply for domestic projects and initiating a FLNG project.
