Report summary

The Ghana Cote d'Ivoire Basin is located offshore western Ghana and, to date, has been the most successful basin for exploration in the country. Over the last decade, exploration results have been very encouraging and a key success was the discovery of the giant Jubilee field in 2007.However, since its discovery, new finds have been much smaller in size, averaging just over 60 million barrels of oil equivalent. It is thought that many of the best prospects in the basin have now been drilled and explorers in the country may start to turn their attention to the neighbouring Keta-Togo-Benin Basin to the east.
