Mauritania & Senegal: Greater Tortue

A Major Resource

Kosmos opened a significant new hydrocarbon province when it discovered a large accumulation of natural gas offshore Mauritania and Senegal. Success at Greater Tortue was the result of applying the company’s proprietary knowledge of the overlooked Upper Cretaceous structural-stratigraphic play concept to the unique conditions of this region in which sands bypassed the shelf and deposited in deeper water.

A World-Scale, Fast-Track Gas Project

At Greater Tortue, a Kosmos-BP partnership is developing an innovative near-shore liquefied natural gas (LNG) project that is among the lowest cost greenfield projects in the world. The initial phase of the project is expected to deliver approximately 2.5 mmtpa of natural gas. The partnership is also evaluating potential expansion up to 10 mmtpa in subsequent phases.

In late 2017, Kosmos acquired five blocks offshore Cote d'Ivoire as part of its return to the Transform Margin of Africa and the Gulf of Guinea to pursue second-cycle exploration opportunities. LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR CÔTE D’IVOIRE OPERATIONS
