We carried out a screening study for an exploration license in a deep water section of Cote D’Ivoire’s territorial waters. A range of potential prospective oil field sizes were evaluated ranging from 20-100 million barrels recoverable. The study’s key objective was to establish if economic solutions could be established for development of these relatively small prospective fields. The development solution focussed on the use of FPSO’s as the primary production vehicle. Exploration, appraisal, development and operating cost estimates were generated using our NETCO$TER Cost Evaluation Software.
