Report summaryCI-525 is a large block located at the eastern edge of the Côte d'Ivoire basin, adjacent to the maritime border with Ghana. Three discoveries lie on the block, all made in the 1970s and 1980s. Kudu and Impala contain oil and gas. Impala straddles the boundary with block CI-202 but it is a very small discovery and as such, unitisation is currently not an issue. Eland is a gas field. CI-525 lies adjacent to several oil and gas discoveries made on the Deepwater Tano block in Ghana. The partners planned to apply the latest understanding of Upper Cretaceous turbidite fan systems in Ghana with the objective of proving up larger prospects than originally mapped. However the drop in oil prices, allied to Afren going into administration in July 2015, has meant planned seismic and exploration drilling has not been carried out. Afren is nominally the operator of the block but it fell into administration in July 2015. Hence there is considerable uncertainty over what will happen to its assets.
