Welligence Sub-Saharan Africa | ENI confirms Baleine extension

August 2, 2022

The results of Eni’s latest Baleine well offshore Côte d’Ivoire are highly encouraging. Not only did Baleine East 1X confirm the eastward extension of the deepwater discovery into block CI-802 but testing implied potential well productivity of 12,000 bbl/d oil and 14 MMcf/d gas. This led the operator to increase the in-place volume to 2.5 Bnbbl oil and 3.3 Tcf gas, a 25% uplift.
