The acquisition of Pampo and Enchova from Petrobras was a major milestone for the company.
Building on our success with the Ceiba and Okume Assets in Equatorial Guinea, we have an ambitious plan to increase the production from Pampo-Enchova to above 40,000 bopd.
These fields are located in the Campos basin, in water depths ranging from 85m to 780m. Trident Energy owns 100% working interest and is the operator of all 10 concessions.
Trident Energy has a multi-faceted plan to re-energise and further develop the Pampo and Enchova assets.
- Facilities and surface optimisations
- Trident Energy explores every avenue in the hunt for production efficiencies and optimisation.
- Well recompletions
- We are planning on maximising the recovery from the existing wells, combining artificial lift with behind-pipe opportunities. We also intend to restart shut-in wells with remaining potential.
- Water injection, infill and step-out drilling
- Our subsurface and engineering teams are formulating plans to upscale the water injection facilities, and they are maturing prospects for the drilling campaigns to come.
- Near-field exploration
- Near-field exploration is an important aspect of our long-term strategy for Brazil. We are working on identifying new targets that can be tied back to our existing facilities, to fast track first oil and reduce development costs.
