Maersk completes appraisal well offshore Angola

Posted on 10 June 2010

Maersk Oil finalized the appraisal well Chissonga-2, located in 1,355 m of water, near Chissonga-1, in Block 16 offshore Angola. The well was drilled to a total depth of 6,052 m. One production test was conducted in turbidites of Oligocene age, which flowed 6,650 bbl/day of 36° API oil on a 36/64-in. choke.

“We are encouraged by the results we have made in the Chissonga-1 and -2 wells. We will now evaluate and analyze the results to determine if a development is commercially feasible. We expect to come to a conclusion early 2011,” said Lars Nydahl Jørgensen, head of exploration, Maersk.
