Report summary

The Senegal Bove Basin sits on a passive margin in the eastern Atlantic. The Senegalese sector shares much of its geology with Mauritania to the north. In 2014 Cairn Energy made two large deepwater Cretaceous turbidite oil discoveries. These proved up an extension of the play that has provided large discoveries further southeast in Ghana. In 2015 Kosmos Energy made the multi tcf Tortue gas discovery in Mauritania and then proved up its extension south into Senegal in 2016. Kosmos subsequently discovered the Teranga gas field solely in Senegalese waters. Following a farm in by BP in 2017 Kosmos discovered the nearby 15 tcf Yakaar field. The Senegal Bove Basin has thus become a global exploration hotspot with further E&A activity ongoing in the next few years. We analyse the remaining yet to find potential of the basin in Senegal and the achievable exploration metrics from future activity. All analysis results and forecast metrics are available to download in pdf and excel format.
