Sudan Muglad Sudd Rift exploration basin

Sudan Muglad Sudd Rift exploration basin

Report summary

Despite the limited information released on upstream activity in Sudan, Wood Mackenzie estimates that value has been created from ongoing exploration in the Muglad - Sudd Rift Basin, where over 220 exploration wells have now been drilled. We expect the majority of future discoveries to be small-to-medium sized pools. Most of the oil exploration areas in Sudan are flooded during the rainy season, which typically lasts from April to October. Elevated roads and drilling pads are therefore often required in order to sustain year-round exploration and development activities, and these harsh operating conditions and the remote location of the basin drive up costs. Despite this, the export infrastructure has spare capacity and new finds could achieve short lead times, allowing good retruns. Opportunities to access the basin should become available over the next five years, as a number of the large existing licences that cover almost all the basin will in theory expire.

Oil and gas exploration is an industry in constant motion, from technological breakthroughs to shifting supply and demand. The high costs of finding and developing new oil and gas fields that can be commercially developed has created a challenging atmosphere, with explorers increasingly seeing low returns, low value and slow progress.

This Exploration Basin report provides a detailed analysis of exploration of this basin, including discovery and development costs, location maps and information about licensing and fiscal terms. You'll also find information about discovery and development costs and full-cycle returns.

Explorers and advisors can use this report to understand the history and potential value of this basin.

Wood Mackenzie has access to historic data for over 450 basins and forecasts for more than 125 basins. We provide accurate information on the cost of exploration compared to the value of discoveries so that you can develop profitable strategies.

Our in-depth analysis gives you the information you need to navigate the ever-changing challenges of oil and gas exploration so you can make critical commercial decisions.
