We developed an independent reserves assessment for four newly discovered fields in this ultra deep water license area in Nigeria in conformance with PRMS standards. We carried out a full seismic interpretation, prepared a reservoir assessment and production profiles, developed outline field development plans and also conducted a full development and operating cost assessment using our NETCO$TER cost Evaluation Software.
The discoveries are located in ultra deep water depths and required the use of innovative productions solutions in the development scheme. Based on the commercial terms associated with the acreage and the technical and cost assessment described above we developed an independent valuation of the discoveries. We also carried out a full prospectivity assessment of the acreage based on recently acquired 3D seismic data. The work was conducted as part of a farm-out process which is now complete. The Client disposed of a major portion of his 100% holding in the Block.
