Deepwater Exploration Drilling Operations in the Rovuma Offshore Area 1, Mozambique




Anadarko Moçambique Área 1, Lda (AMA1) signed an Exploration and Production Concession (EPC) contract with the Government of the Republic of Mozambique for Offshore Area 1 (Area 1) in the Rovuma Basin. The EPC contract gives AMA1 exclusive rights to explore for and produce commercial quantities of hydrocarbons in the block. As part of the agreement AMA1 has committed to undertake 2D and 3D seismic surveys and to drill a minimum of seven wells, with a minimum of four in water depths greater than 200m. The main objective of the drilling phase is to determine if the identified prospects (arising from the seismic survey1 initiated in January 2008) have hydrocarbons in commercial quantities. The exploratory drilling is a temporary activity.
