Anadarko’s continued global business approach has led to significant discoveries and developments throughout the African continent.
Evaluating Offshore Discoveries in Côte d’Ivoire
Following Anadarko’s success in neighboring Ghana, the company began looking for similar opportunities along the Cretaceous trend in the Ivorian Basin. As a result, Anadarko acquired interests in five offshore blocks totaling approximately 1.4 million acres offshore Côte d’Ivoire.
Potential in Paon
In 2012, Anadarko announced a light-oil discovery at the Paon prospect in Block CI-103, where it encountered more than 100 net feet of oil pay. The discovery confirmed the Upper Cretaceous fan system extended westward into Côte d’Ivoire. Anadarko is currently appraising the Paon discovery and evaluating potential development scenarios.
Take a look at petroleum industry jobs with the Anadarko team in Africa.
“The Paon well marked the first deepwater discovery in the CI-103 block offshore Côte d’Ivoire and opened up an entirely new play for the country and our partnership.”
