Ghana oil firm, Aker Energy, sees numerous opportunities in the DWT/CTP Block, and is starting with development of the Pecan Field.
The development scheme is selected to adapt to a changing world and significant volatility in commodity prices.
Pecan Field was discovered by Hess in 2012 and they had appraised the field with five reservoir penetrations. The appraisals and drill-stem tests showed promising results and a light, under-saturated oil with favourable oil characteristics suited for waterflood.
According to Aker quarterly reports, the development concept will build on experience derived from projects and operations in similar water depths.
The CEO of Aker, Oeyvind Eriksen, says in order to minimize risk exposure during project execution and field operations, qualified technologies and well-known development solutions will be utilized.
He added that, Aker Energy will build on decades on oil and gas know-how in the Aker Group. This will be based upon experience from numerous oil field development projects on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and globally.
