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.
