Kosmos Energy Updates on Drilling at Cedrela-1 Exploration Well

Kosmos Energy has offered details of the drilling program at the Cedrela-1 exploration well offshore in the Republic of Ghana. The company is expecting the arrival of the semi-submersible drill rig called Transocean Marianas, which is under a deal with another operator in Ghana, at the Cedrela-1 well site on the West Cape Three Points Block at the earliest to begin drilling.

The rig was made inoperable momentarily due to an anchor-handling incident that happened at the Offshore Cape three points block. This block is located at the east of the West Cape three points block operated by Kosmos. This event took place as the company was preparing to mobilize the drill rig from the block of the other operator to the Cedrela-1 well site.

Kosmos has sent a force majeure notice to the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation and the government of Ghana owing to the impediment of the planned arrival of the rig at the Cedrela-1 well site. Therefore, Kosmos has started to seek for an alternate drill rig and plans to drill the Cedrela-1 well using either the Transocean Marianas or a substitute rig if available. It has the required endorsements to drill the Cedrela-1 well and is expecting the early availability of the rig.

The operator of the West Cape three points block is Kosmos and it has a 30.875% interest in the block.
