Morocco - Oil and Gas Exploration

Significant New Play Opportunities

Kosmos’ position offshore Morocco provides multiple play types with substantial running room. The region contains evidence of working hydrocarbon systems, with oil shows in prior onshore and offshore drilling, as well as existing oil and gas production onshore Morocco. 

Agadir Basin

We hold an interest in the Essaouira block in the offshore Agadir Basin, which is an underexplored basin with a variety of exploration plays, including our core geologic theme in the late Cretaceous formation. In addition, it is a salt basin that provides significant hydrocarbon trapping opportunities.
