Kosmos Energy (KOS) completed drilling the Requin Tigre-1 exploration well Senegal

Kosmos Energy (KOS) announced that it has completed drilling the Requin Tigre-1 exploration well located in Senegal's Saint Louis Offshore Profond block. 
  • Requin Tigre-1 was drilled to a total depth of 5,200 meters and was designed to evaluate Cenomanian and Albian reservoirs in a structural-stratigraphic trap, charged from an underlying Neocomian-Valanginian source kitchen. 


Kosmos Energy and its partners, British oil giant BP (NYSE: BP) and the national oil company of Senegal, recently finished drilling the Requin Tigre-1 exploration well. However, Kosmos said that after extensive testing, the partners didn't encounter any oil and gas. This dry hole in is the latest in a string of exploration misses for Kosmos since it signed an exploration deal with BP at the end of 2016, only hitting on one of the four wells in the second phase of its program. It was much more successful in the first phase, going 3-for-3 and discovering a major natural gas resource.
