Total makes significant gas condensate discovery on the Luiperd prospect, offshore South Africa
Total has made a significant gas condensate discovery on the Luiperd prospect, located on Block 11B/12B in the Outeniqua Basin, 175 kms off the southern coast of South Africa. This discovery follows the adjacent play opening Brulpadda discovery in 2019, which proved a significant new petroleum province in the region.
The Luiperd well was drilled to a total depth of about 3,400 meters and encountered 73 meters of net gas condensate pay in well-developed good quality Lower Cretaceous reservoirs. Following a comprehensive coring and logging program the well will be tested to assess the dynamic reservoir characteristics and deliverability.
‘We are very pleased with this second discovery and its very encouraging results, which prove the world-class nature of this offshore gas play,’ said Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production at Total.
