Mauritania

Extending Our Core Geologic Theme

Our position offshore Mauritania is a significant extension of the core Cretaceous theme along the West Africa Transform Margin that Kosmos confirmed in the Tano Basin offshore Ghana. The company’s acreage is located in the Mauritania salt basin, where industry results confirm the presence of a working petroleum system and the potential for both oil and gas-condensate.

Successful Exploration

To date, Kosmos has drilled several successful wells offshore Mauritania. Tortue-1 and Ahmeyim-2 were drilled in the southern part of block C8 and made important discoveries in the Greater Tortue area.

Kosmos also made another major gas discovery in the northern part of block C8 when our Marsouin-1 exploration well encountered gas, representing a significant, play-extending find.
