Offshore Marvel: Ntokon-1AX and Ntokon-1G1 Steal the Show
In the hilarious realm of shallow waters, approximately 60km off Nigeria’s southeast coast, the Ntokon-1AX discovery well dazzled with an encounter of 38 meters of net oil pay and 15 meters of net gas pay. But hold your breath for the showstopper—Ntokon-1G1 stole the spotlight by revealing a mind-boggling 73 meters of net oil pay in top-notch reservoirs. It’s oil exploration at its finest!
Pumping Success: Ntokon-1G1 Hits the Jackpot
The crowd erupted in cheers as Ntokon-1G1 flaunted its prowess, successfully testing up to a maximum rate of about 5,000 barrels per day of 40° API oil. It’s like striking oil comedy gold!
Bridging the Gap: Ntokon’s Plans for Existing Facilities
Just a stone’s throw away, approximately 20km from the Ofon field facilities on OML102, Ntokon has big dreams. The master plan? A delightful tie-back to these already existing facilities, ensuring a seamless integration of hilarity and productivity.
Promising Prospects: TotalEnergies Delights in New Tie-Back Development
With a twinkle in his eye, Nicolas Terraz, the President of Exploration & Production at TotalEnergies, couldn’t contain his excitement. “The Ntokon discovery opens a world of hilarity and promise for a new tie-back development,” he exclaimed. This comedic breakthrough, coupled with the success of the Ikike tie-back on OML99 in 2022, showcases the incredible potential of nearby exploration within TotalEnergies’ low cost, low emission strategy. Comedy and sustainability—what a dynamic duo!
