OML 65

Sirius owns 30% equity in Nigerian joint venture COPDC which is developing the OML 65 licence, a producing onshore block located within the Greater Ughelli Depobelt, Niger Delta, Nigeria.

  • The Abura field has achieved production to date of c.50 MMbbl and current production is 10,000 bopd and the field has 16.2 MMbbls1 2P reserves. Phase 1 of the approved work programme for the Abura field is designed to add an incremental production of 11,000 bopd.  Phase 1 will consist up to a nine well work programme which is fully funded.
  • OML 65 also contains two further discovered fields with an estimated 34.9 mmbbls1 additional 2P reserves, Owopele and Osioka. The fields have not been developed to date and will form part of the forward work programme.
  • Innovative FTSA (Financial Technical Services Agreement) structure which was developed for this specific project with the NNPC.
  • The recoverable volumes attributed to the Abura, Osioka and Owopele fields by Gaffney Cline are based on an assumed average recovery factor of 30%, which is conservative in the context of recovery factors typically achieved on analogous fields in the Niger Delta.
  • Gaffney Cline has estimated 3P reserves of over 78mmbbls for Abura, Osioka and Owopele, implying an additional 27mmbbls of recoverable volumes in the high case.
  • In addition, there are two targeted deeper prospects at Abura and Osioka containing an additional 227mmbbls1 oil in place, to which Gaffney Cline have attributed P50 prospective resources of 91mmbbls, implying a recovery factor of 40%.
  • The existing production facilities and infrastructure servicing the Abura field are capable of handling up to 40,000 bopd.

ATOG Tunisia

Sirius owns 10% equity in Anglo Tunisian Oil and Gas Limited ("ATOG").

  • The ATOG portfolio is currently producing approximately 1,500 boepd from three onshore licences:
  • The portfolio contains gross 2P reserves and 2C contingent resources of c.21 mmboe
  • The licences come with $14m of newly acquired and processed 3D seismic which ATOG holds and has used this to prioritise low risk, step out drilling opportunities. Schlumberger has estimated that the operated onshore exploration licences, Sud Remada and Jenein, contain gross original oil in place of, respectively 472 mmbbls and 100 mmbbls
  • The offshore licences, Cosmos and Yasmin, contain two discoveries which flow tested at 5,700 bopd and 1,200 bopd respectively
