Eni has completed the appraisal and testing of the Sankofa discovery in the Offshore Cape Three Points licence, offshore Ghana.

Eni drilled the Sankofa-2 well to a depth of 864m, 55km off the coast.

The well showed a rate of 29.5mmscfd of high quality gas and 1,000boe per day of 52° API condensate, confirming the presence of 35m of net gas and condensate sands of the Cretaceous age.

Eni came across a 6m oil leg and initial evaluations showed that the appraisal well has increased the preliminary estimate of gas at the Sankofa discovery.
