    Kosmos Energy has made a major gas discovery at Yakaar-1 well, located in the Cayar Offshore Profond block, offshore Senegal.

    The well has been drilled by the the Atwood Achiever rig to a total depth of approximately 4,700m, in nearly 2,550m of water. The well intersected a gross hydrocarbon column of 120m (394 ft) in three pools within the primary Lower Cenomanian objective and encountered 45m (148 ft) of net pay. Well results confirm the presence of thick, stacked, reservoir sands over a very large area with very good porosity and permeability.

    Kosmos estimates Yakaar-1 discovered a gross Pmean gas resource of approximately 15 Tcf, in-line with pre-drill expectations. Preliminary analysis of gas samples conducted on the rig suggest the well encountered a gas with a condensate-to-gas ratio (CGR) in the range of approximately 15-30 bbl/MMscf.

    Ownership of Cayar Offshore Profond: Kosmos (30%, operator), BP (30%), Timis Corporation (30%) and Petrosen (10%).
