Springfield Exploration & Production Ltd., Accra, has spudded the first of two deepwater wells planned on its West Cape Three Points Block 2 offshore Ghana.

The Stena Forth drillship is drilling the exploratory Afina-1x well, to be followed by the Oak-1x well. Drilling of both Tano-Western basin wells is expected to take 3 months.

Springfield E&P operates the block with an 84% interest. Ghana National Petroleum Co. holds the rest.

Petroleum Geo-Services shot a 3D seismic survey over the block, which Springfield was awarded in 2016.

Springfield says it’s the first independent Ghanaian operating company to drill in deep water. Springfield E&P is a subsidiary of Springfield Group, an oil product distributor and oil services provider in Ghana.
