Using  Wood Mackenzie's Lens platform, we examine the subsurface and commercial implications of Eni’s recent Baleine discovery. This giant deepwater Cretaceous light oil discovery is the largest ever made in Cote d’Ivoire. 

Eni estimates oil-in-place of 1.5 to 2 billion barrels and 1.8 to 2.4 tcf of gas. Eni (90%) and PETROCI (10%) will appraise Baleine and consider near-term development options.
