Confirmation of new Tortue western field

A new well, drilled to 3,550 m TD, is confirmed in the Tortue western area. BW Offshore confirmed this with a recent survey, discovering additional hydrocarbon pay in the Dentale D2B and Dentale D6 reservoirs.
The new DTM-3 well followed completion of the DTM-2H horizontal production well targeting the Dentale D6 reservoir in April. Additional development will also bring life to DTM-3H, which will target the Gamba sandstone in the central part of the field. Production is to start in the second half of the year.
