BP agrees deal with Kosmos Energy to partner on world-class discoveries in Mauritania and Senegal and cooperate on future exploration

Dernière mise à jour: octobre 21, 2021

The deal gives BP a leadership position in an emerging world-class, low-cost gas basin with advantaged access to global gas markets

BP announced today that it has signed agreements with Kosmos Energy to acquire a 62% working interest, including operatorship, of Kosmos’ exploration blocks in Mauritania and a 32.49% effective working interest in Kosmos’ Senegal exploration blocks — acreage which holds world-class deepwater gas discoveries and exploration prospectivity across both countries.

The approximately 33,000 square kilometres of acreage covered by today’s agreements includes the Tortue field, estimated by Kosmos to contain more than 15 tcf of discovered gas resources. The total acreage, by Kosmos’ estimates, could contain roughly 50tcf of gas resource potential and in excess of 1 billion barrels of liquids resource potential.

BP will invest nearly one billion dollars mostly in the form of a multi-2023 exploration and development carry to acquire a 62% interest and operatorship of offshore Blocks C-6, C-8, C-12 and C-13 in Mauritania and an effective 32.49% interest in the Saint-Louis Profond and Cayar Profond blocks in Senegal.
