Aker Energy cheers Pecan well success off Ghana

Aker Energy, as the operator of the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points (DWT/CTP) block, is about to complete a successful drilling operation of the Pecan-4A appraisal well offshore Ghana.

Aker Energy signed a contract with Maersk Drilling for Maersk Viking drillship to drill the Pecan-4A appraisal well in September 2018. Also in September, Aker Energy awarded contracts related to its drilling campaign in Ghana to PMD Viking Ghana Limited, Halliburton Ghana, and Exceed Well Management.

Aker Energy said on Thursday that the main purpose of Pecan-4A appraisal well was to confirm Aker Energy’s understanding of the geology in the area and to identify deep oil water contact in the Pecan reservoir. This was successfully proven, the company said.

Aker Energy is the operator of the DWT/CTP block with a 50% participating interest. Aker Energy’s partners are Lukoil (38%), the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) (10%), and Fueltrade (2%).
