New Project with CNR in Côte d’Ivoire
Swiftdale has just signed up to provide wellsite geologists for CNR International in the re-development and drilling of extended reach wells on their Espoir field, offshore Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa. The Espoir Phase II development project will be done via the KCA Deutag Glen Esk self-erect tender barge and is expected to commence late 2012, with drilling of 10 to 11 wells.
Offshore Cote d’Ivoire CNR currently produce from two reservoirs, East and West Espoir located approximately 60 kilometers southwest of Abidjan, capital of Cote d’Ivoire. The field is developed through highly deviated wells and the use of water injection and other recovery techniques to achieve superior flow rates. The light crude is then processed, stored and offloaded via a floating production storage and off-take (FPSO) vessel.
