Plans in place to drill two exploration wells starting early in
interest in block L10A
interest in block L10B
BG Group entered Kenya in 2011. We acquired an interest in two offshore blocks and have undertaken two 3D seismic surveys.
In 2011, BG Group signed Production Sharing Contracts with the government of Kenya for two offshore exploration blocks – L10A and L10B. BG Group is operator on both blocks and holds a 40% equity interest in block L10A (Cove Energy 25%, Premier Oil 20%, Pancontinental 15%) and a 45% interest in block L10B (Premier Oil 25%, Cove Energy 15%, Pancontinental 15%).
2D and 3D seismic data acquisition has been done during 2012 and 2013. First exploration well is planned in early 2014.
Blocks L10A and L10B together cover an area of more than 10 400 square kilometres in the southern portion of the Lamu basin located in water depths ranging from around 200 metres to in excess of 1,900 metres.
