In early 2019, Kosmos executed a farm-in agreement with OK Energy to acquire a non-operated interest in the Northern Cape Ultra-Deep block offshore the Republic of South Africa. The acquisition was part of the strategic exploration alliance with Shell Exploration Company to jointly explore in Southern West Africa, and reaffirms the Kosmos strategy of capturing large acreage positions as first movers in a frontier basin. In conjunction with PEL39 in Namibia, Kosmos has established a leading, contiguous position with play diversity and exploration upside in the highly-anticipated Orange Basin.
